Possible Answers


1.  Do you think a boy and a prairie dog could become friends?  Why?
Possible Answer:  I do think they could be friends.  One time my sister and I found a blue jay under a tree.  It was there for many days.  We would go out and sit by it.  It would let us get closer every day.  After a few weeks we could go outside and it would come and fly right by us.  It would sit in a tree while we played on the front porch.  The blue jay became our friend.  This is why I think the boy in the book could become friends with a prairie dog.
