Christmas Book {day 5}

Angelina's Christmas (Angelina Ballerina)
Our fifth books was Angelina's Christmas by Katherine Holabird. Olivia adores Angelina and was thrilled when she unwrapped this book. In the book Angelina and her family bring Christmas joy to old Mr. Bell. It was a great opportunity for us to talk about how some people can't be with their family during Christmas.
For our activity we made Christmas cards for the Holiday Mail for Heroes Program sponsored by the Red Cross. The front of the card is a hand print Christmas tree and the inside has a thumbprint reindeer. We made a total of ten cards to send out. I hope the cards will brighten someone's day.
