An old farmer, living alone in the middle of nowhere, rescues a baby clown who has fallen off a circus train. He is initially reluctant, but, as they spend time together at his farm, they find friendship through play and laughter. Through the story, they find something new in themselves by being with each other.
What might the Farmer be saying? Can you add a speech bubble to help tell the story?
Home. You know where it is when you’re there.
Here is a little craft activity. What does home mean to you? Do you have a special place? Draw or write about it on the inside of this little house. Then make and decorate your own little house!
