Chapter 3

In Germany, captive elephants eat holiday leftovers: Christmas trees! Each elephant consumes about five Christmas trees a day.


  • Do you think it's true that elephants can eat Christmas trees (let alone five in one day!)? Or did the author just make that up? Think/Pair/Share. Remember to justify your opinions with evidence and proof!
  • What does this quote have to do with the story? to roast a marshmallow over a camp fire.

Can you find Jamaica Plain?

Sounds like a great book! See the goodreads review here.
