This study guide is written for the teacher and parent, packed with science and craft extensions, and coloring and activity handouts to keep little hands busy while they discuss and learn. 

Oscar Otter is tired of other animals getting in his way when he plays, so he decides to build his own slide up in the mountains. He ignores some important advice from his father and ends up in danger. His enemy, the fox, is watching! But what the fox doesn't know is that someone is watching him . . . . 
Henry and Mudge, everyone's favorite boy and dog duo, learn that friends are more important than things, there are flowers to smell, puddles to splash in, and newborn kittens to take care of. Come along for three sweet springtime adventures!
