Library     Lobo, the King of Currumpaw     Parent Guide

by Ernest Seton Thompson


Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Lobo, the King of Currumpaw" by Ernest Seton Thompson.

This excerpt is taken from his book Wild Animals I Have Known, based on naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton's true experiences hunting wolves in the American Southwest, including the infamous wolf Lobo.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Human vs. Nature, Love, and Revenge & Betrayal as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How are we changed by love?", "Who's in control: humanity or nature?", and "Is revenge ever justified?"
