rushing the season
CHRISTMAS A B C by Florence Johnson with illustrations by Eloise Wilkin. Little Golden Books, 1962.
More than half a century later, this Little Golden Book still appeals to children because of its universal themes surrounding the holiday. It might prove interesting to locate and share books from each decade since the publication of this holiday book. Ask kids to compare and contrast them.
DINOSAUR CHRISTMAS by Jerry Pallotta with illustration by Howard McWilliam. Scholastic, 2013.
Santa remembers back when, instead of reindeer, dinosaurs pulled his sleigh. Sometimes the dinosaurs were a good match, and sometimes the results were less than laudatory.
