So just in time for the Holiday season and with Christmas just around the corner...here are the books we reviewed...maybe some will make it under your Christmas tree or as part of you Christmas reading list, of interactive Advent Calendar countdown using the books each day leading to Christmas day or as the 8 nights of gifts of Chanukah.
From decorating the tree to wrapping presents, little dinosaurs love to celebrate Christmas — and everything about it. With ornaments on the branches and carolers singing at the door, the spirit of Christmas is finally here and filling the hearts of families everywhere. But when the stockings are hung on the chimney, and the cookies are left out for Santa, how can little dinosaurs go to sleep? It's so exciting! How can they possibly calm down and behave?
Children will laugh out loud as dinosaurs secretly lick candy canes, take sneaky peeks at gifts, and disrupt the traditional family feast. With holiday surprises around every corner, the award winning team of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague create an engaging, fun gift sure to be read again and again, year after year.
My Review~~ We really enjoyed reading this book. We first got to know all the dinosaurs in the inside cover of the book. We talked about the what a dinosaur might do at Christmas time and why he might do the things the book asked about, such as "Does he rip open presents set under the tree?" Then as we read on we discussed how we should behave at Christmas time and how excited we get at this time of the year but should be on our most wonderful behaviour to show our appreciation to how fortunate we have been all year long. This book was well illustrated and well written in the way kids would find fun and interesting. It allows parents and kids could interact with the ideas brought up in the book. It will definitely be a book we bring out every year to discuss how to behave (just in time for our Elf on the Shelf... Little Gene to arrive)
Here is a look into the book...
Thanks to Scholastic for the book to review... we will feature another Holiday book next week that we are reviewing from Scholastic.
