After you have read Poppy and Rye, answer the following discussion questions:
1. Clover has 63 children. Would you like that many brothers and sisters? Why would this be good or bad?
2. How are Ragweed and his brother, Rye, different? Alike? Do you have a brother or sister? Are you alike or different?
3. How does Thistle describe Rye? Do you think this is true? How would your family describe you?
4. The motto of the beavers is “Progress Without Pain”. Do you think that this is true in the story? What about in real life?
