This week we’re going to read The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski and then, following the suggestion in Christmas Mosaic, the girls will set up their own manger scene. I got this set for them, and we’re looking forward to placing it under our tree. We’ll also make some molasses cookies like the ones mentioned in the book.
A highlight of last week was the arrival of our copy of Merry Christmas, Ollie! by Olivier Dunrea. We’ve already read it dozens of time. C is in love with the goslings.
Other books we’ve been enjoying:
The Animals Merry Christmas by Richard Scarry (A favorite of mine from childhood)
Christmas in the Big Woods (A My First Little House Book)
The Animal’s Christmas Eve (a Golden book from my childhood)
