Our book today was The Donkey's Christmas Song by Nancy Tafuri. This is my favorite book. All the animals sing baby Jesus a sweet song. The little donkey is worried that his song is too loud but the baby laughs in joy. Both girls enjoyed the book as well. Olivia likes sing along with the animals.
Unfortunately Olivia didn't like our activity. She just wasn't in a coloring mood. It's a really cute activity. You color, cut and glue a free standing nativity scene. I showed her how the animals stand up and she got a little excited but I think it's just too much for her to color at one time. She prefers drawing to coloring. But we keep working on it everyday. Maybe we'll have it done by Christmas. You can get your own nativity scene here.
