Primary picture books are a delight in December!
Old Bear from Kevin Henkes' book might be dreaming while he hibernates. A favorite of the first grade has been Ginger Bear by Mini Grey, and they are enjoying working collaboratively on a huge mural depicting the merry mischief of all of Ginger Bear's cookie friends, as inspired by the book. Dreidels were spinning and so were stories as the second grade got lots of laughs from the clever and exciting tale of Herschel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel and illustrated by the inimitable Trina Schart Hyman. Please check out lots and lots and lots of December snowy-time, story time recommendations featuring traditional December holidays here!
