The 12 Days of [Children’s Literature before] Christmas is a semester break special borrowing from the traditional 12 Days of Christmas (that occur after December 25th). The point is to get you into the spirit of the season by recommending one book per day leading up to Christmas. The books can be read by children of all ages (when do we really stop being children?) and to children of all ages (who says a newborn doesn’t understand what you read to her/him?).
Comments are always welcomed. May your days and wintry evenings be merry and bright as you cuddle-up with a blanket and book, and maybe in the company of other children. Enjoy!
9 Days before Christmas: Night Tree
In honor of the annual trip some peeps make to purchase that special Christmas tree, I give you this story. I don’t want to reveal much, but if you like nature, and you like those creatures that live in forests, give this book a read. Then, if you have time, head on over to Brookfield Zoo to see examples similar to the one in this book. BTW nothin’ wrong with puttin’ up the artificial Tannenbaum. Enjoy your tree trimmin’!
High-five to the book worms at Camp Realist who are assisting me with the list.
