Our final Jan Brett Christmas book from last week (there are actually more that we read later in the month) was Who's That Knocking on Christmas Eve. This is a funny story of a little girl and her family, who are pestered by some terrible trolls every Christmas Eve. But one Christmas Eve a little boy and his snow bear, who were just passing through, stop to help the girl get rid of the trolls for good. Now the family can enjoy their Christmas Eve feast in peace!
After reading this book, we created a magical little space of snow and ice for everyone to play with and create their own little Christmas adventures. All it took was some white felt, sparkling white pom-pom balls, white stones for :"snow" and clear stones for "ice" (just vase-fillers from the craft store). The snowy Christmas fun has begun!!!
