The Stranger- An Excellent Book for Inferring and Questioning – Kristin Kennedy

If Johnny walks inside with a heavy coat on...what can you infer? Kids: "It's cold outside!" If Jane has chocolate between her teeth...what can you infer? Kids: "She just ate something chocolatey!" Then we move on and ask our kids to infer on a deeper level...but what text should we use? Most stories or reading passages do not require…
