A Christmas book and a craft

We read "B is for Bethlehem" by Isabel Wilner
and illustrated by Elisa Kleven. 
I really like this book mostly for the illustrations.
The artist used every color to depict the
Christmas story.
Victoria and I glued a paper chain.
I think that every child needs the experience of gluing a paper chain. 
I remember doing some when I was little and helping each of my children do one.
It is funny how you either like making a paper chain or you don't.
You either get a good glue stick that actually sticks the paper
together or you don't and have to resort to a stapler. 
Fortunately we had two really good sticky glue sticks.
It is kind of a childhood right of passage.
I think Sammy even enjoyed getting in on the festivities.

I think you should start a children book review blog, you would do a great job and it would be really fun. DO IT.
