Book Highlight - “The Mitten Tree”

Many of us are familiar with the storybook "The Mitten" and there is another wonderful story to share called "The Mitten Tree" by Candace Christiansen.

The story is about Sarah whose children have all grown up and new children in her neighborhood. It is about an act of kindness that sparked another kindness in return that brought happiness to the whole neighborhood.

I hope you enjoy sharing this story as much as I have over the years.

Santa Countdown!

Kids love to count down to special days. The activity of a countdown provides practice counting forward each day as well as counting back to determine how many days are left before the special day.

This special Santa has 25 presents in his beard.  Each day the child covers one of the presents with a cotton ball. By Christmas, he has grown a fluffy white beard!
