|December 22, 2009||Posted by Miss Shari under Christmas, Events & Celebrations|
It has been a busy book month. There is no doubt about the amount of Christmas books to pick from; there are many many Christmas stories to share. After the trees were trimmed some of the stories that graced the story carpet were New York Times Bestseller Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas.
Any little girl, who loves dress up, crafts and imagination, loves Nancy. And Nancy is looking foward to the fanciest Christmas, with fancy trim, trees and the fanciest tree topper yet! Will disaster fall upon the Fancy Clancys? Or will this Christmas be “splendiferous”. Visit Nancy’s site for cool games, books and meet the creators of this posh book series.
We also remembered Hanukkah, The Festival of Lights or Feast of Dedication December 11 – 19th. There are many children’s books covering this special holiday. The stories shared this month were The Chanukkah Guest by Eric Kimmel, Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story by Fran Maushkin and Our Eight Nights of Hanukkah by Michael J. Rosen, this book is perfect for teaching little ones about sharing thier faith and special holidays with everyone. Our Tuesday for Twos article covered Susan Roth’s book from the song Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah. A short catchy song in book form is perfect for waddlers and toddlers.
There is only a few days left it is hard to believe, but don’t let doubt sway your Christmas spirit. There is still time to bake that special batch of traditional Christmas cookies, get that special present or just sit back and share a timeless classic holiday tale. We’ve all come to love Chris Van Allsburg’s classic The Polar Express. I am sure your little ones have had the privledge of sharing the newest trend of “Polar Express day” at school and daycare…it is for those who truly believe – a day to kick back and have a P.J. party and watch the movie.
I didn’t forget, one of my favorite characters, little Harold – toting his purple crayon and his moon. Once again Harold took us on an amazing adventure to the North Pole. Harold is woried that he will not be ready for Santa’s arrival on Christmas Eve; he hasn’t a tree or stocking. While Harold looks for the perfect tree, he soon finds himself at the North Pole – helping Santa! Curl up on your own “big soft chair” a enjoy Harold at the North Pole, to see if Harold is ready for Santa on Christmas Eve.
Whatever, your plans are for this next few days don’t miss out on the opportunity – curl up around the tree, the crackling fire or the family couch, enjoy a nice hot cup of cocoa and some cookies – to share a great Christmas story! Merry Christmas!
