The Animals' Christmas

With only one week left before the Christmas holiday, we today read a little about how animals might celebrate the day. Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson told the story of our friend Bear, who is determined to stay awake all Christmas Eve with his woodland pals. In Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas by Julia Rawlinson. Fletcher wants to be certain Santa finds the new burrow of his friends the Rabbit Family, so he tries to mark the way for him. Grumpy Badger's Christmas by Paul Bright, is about Badger, who only wants to hibernate as all the animals in town are getting ready for Christmas.

We looked a little like Christmas critters ourselves, as we left at the end of Storytime wearing reindeer hats! We embellished paper antlers with lots of glitter, then attached them to a decorated brown headband. With an added red nose, we even looked a little like Rudolph!
