I love this book not only because of it's simple rhymes, beautiful illustrations and the fact that the book itself is shaped like a Christmas tree, but because of the story of Christ's birth told through using ornaments on the tree. It's a great way to take a fun tradition and reflect it back on the true reason for the season!
Our first activity for today was a felt Christmas tree with felt ornaments. I'm looking forward to playing with this all of December and for many Decembers to come! Due to some traveling, and forgetting to take a picture, I can't post a picture of our felt tree but will make sure to post it ASAP because... I LOVE it! Here are some sites that helped inspire it:
Johnny in a Dress
The Mother Huddle
I Can Teach My Child
