ABOUT THE BOOK
In Mrs. Look’s Georgetown Central School’s 3rd grade, students explored the questions: “Who is the wolf in fiction?” and “Who is the wolf in fact?” They began by analyzing how the wolf is characterized in traditional stories, folktales, and fables. Then they researched real wolves by reading informational texts. Finally, for their performance task, students had an opportunity to write and illustrate a narrative with a realistic wolf character. The Georgetown Island Education Foundation awarded a grant to Mrs. Look for the students to have a site visit from Chewonki to investigate misconceptions about predators and view live animals. They also funded a portion of the publication fees for this book. 100% of the profit will be donated to Runs with Wolves Sanctuary, a wolf sanctuary we visited in Limington, Maine, where we saw wolves first hand and practiced our wolf sketches.
