Teaching Guide & Other Printables

Free downloads for teachers, librarians, and parents.

If You Wake a Skunk is a terrific way to spark a discussion about an often-misunderstood animal. Kids love learning about the little stinkers, and that interest opens the door to talk about skunk biology, behavior, habitat, and more. See below for some free, downloadable resources.

There’s more available with an in-person visit. I can bring to your school or library a paid presentation that touches on these topics, along with insights about being an author and how the book evolved as I learned more about my subject. Please contact me for information about rates and availability.

These guides and activity packs were developed by Molly Ippolito, a former teacher who designs beautiful and highly effective book-related educational materials.
