We read Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree by Robert Barry. This is such a charming and cheerful story. Mr. Willowby gets a very large tree for his very large home but it is just a little too tall. So the very top is cut off. The top of the tree is then given to the maid, but it is just a little too tall for her home. So the very top is cut off again. This keeps going on until the very "tippest" of the top is given to the tiny mouse family. Now everyone has their very own perfect Christmas Tree cheering up their home. It is just too cute!
We made these Christmas Tree cookies to go with our story. The kids had fun swirling the green icing and sprinkling the colored sprinkles on top. They turned out so simple and so sweet.
