This curriculum includes lesson plans that can stand alone, ideal for summer sessions when gatherings are smaller or for Sundays when teachers are given a holiday. There is a description of each as a "selling point" to attract volunteers and complete list of all the materials needed. Embedded in the lesson plans are rituals to be repeated each Sunday; the Sharing Circle is described and "Magic Penny" is the suggested song. Lessons are based on The Big Brag, The Butter Battle Book, Horton Hears a Who, I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today, If I Ran the Zoo, The King's Stilts, The Lorax, Oh, The Thinks You Can Think, On Beyond Zebra, Hunches in Bunches, McElliogot's Pool, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, and Horton Hatches the Egg. These all need to be purchased or borrowed. Videos are also available for most of the stories.
