Overview: An enjoyable story about a five-year-old boy who is losing his parts. It starts with his hair one day, then his skin is peeling off, then stuff is coming out of his nose, and it doesn’t stop there! What’s a boy supposed to do when his body is falling apart?

Activity: Have the children think of a way that they would keep themselves from falling apart. Would they use the same method as the boy in the story, or would they do something different?
