Holiday books are so much fun! Kindergarten and second grades looked closely at the story and illustrations in Jan Brett's Wild Christmas Reindeer. Then, we watched the video on her website as she described what inspired her to write the book. The first graders considered the importance and impact of a book's illustrator as we compared five versions of Clement Moore's The Night Before Christmas. They voted on the illustrator that most closely matched their mental images of the story. Jan Brett, who is very popular here at Parish, was the hands down winner!
The library rocked when the Pre-K classes danced the Santa Pokey decked out in jingling antlers.
