Talk to your kids about…
If you were given the choice Winnie is faced with, what age would you choose to be?
Winnie’s mother is always concerned about having her home in order while Mae Tuck seems content to live in a more disheveled household. How do the women’s sense of time affect the urgency they feel to get things done? Would you be less motivated to accomplish things if you felt you had all the time in the world?
How did the death of Winnie’s grandmother help her understand Angus’ comment on the “wheel of life”? Do you think that experience influenced her response to her difficult decision?
