The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall

Prior to their museum visit, students should read The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall. Ready Readers will become acquainted with the Penderwick sisters and the rest of the humorous crew (including their protective dog, Hound). At the Amon Carter, gallery teachers will help students make connections between the characters, the lessons learned, the problems solved, and the museum’s collection. Students conclude the Ready Readers Book Club by making their own art project to take home.
