“It’s beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS, everywhere you go! Take a look at the five and ten, caroling once again…” Yes, we are into the season everyone, and here at Amazone we have a nice jungle canopy that you can jump, slide, and climb into for your holiday off of school. So join us!
I am sure by now your tree is up, decorations are all over the house, and the excitement is building! It is a beautiful time to GIVE and SHARE with family, friends and neighbors, there is SO much we can do to make the season special. And, you know one of the things that I am going to recommend the most! Yes, INCLUDE SOME WONDERFUL BOOKS!
So, in honor of “setting up” for Christmas, here are some delightful stories designed to get you in the holiday mood, because they are all ABOUT characters getting into the holiday mood!
Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree by Robert Barry (Preschool through Elementary Grade Readers) this is an absolute MUST READ! The hilarious story takes you through one tree, and how many people benefit from it in the strangest ways! It keeps going, and going, and you will never want this story to end!
A Wish to Be a Christmas Tree (Beginning and Elementary Grade Readers) lovely illustrations and verse will take you through the Christmas season through the perspective of the many trees in the grove, just waiting to be chosen! One tree, taller than the others, is hoping and hoping—go with him through his journey to find a home!
The Littlest Christmas Tree by R. A. Herman (Preschool through Elementary Grade Readers) I don’t know what size your tree is, but even the littlest of trees wants a home! In companion to the story The Littlest Pumpkin (same author) with only five days till Christmas, all little tree wants is for someone to take him home, decorate him and sing his favorite song, “OH Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,” does he get his wish! Find out in this sweet story.
Many more books to recommend in the weeks to follow, friends, to join me to keep reading alive in your homes this Christmas!
