In addition to the chapter summaries, study questions have been created for each chapter.

Some questions require the use of a picture book and in some cases, there is no clear right or wrong answer as the students have to use the book with their own specified age or developmental stage.
Each chapter contains questions based on the following:
- Main ideas
