Activity Overview


Several themes are present in the book. Students can pick a theme to explore and should support their choice with specific details or events from the text. One prominent theme is “friendship”. In all three stories, Poppleton learns a little bit more about what being a friend really means.


Friendship

Example 1:

Patrick, a finch, accidentally knocks down all of Poppleton's icicles. Poppleton doesn't get mad and instead they build a picket fence out of icicles. Poppleton and Patrick become friends.


Example 2:

Poppleton thinks all his friends are too busy to go on a sleigh ride. Poppleton's friends end up surprising him on his birthday with treats and a sleigh ride.
