A Wish to be a Christmas Tree

Tomorrow's book is A Wish to be a Christmas Tree by Colleen Monroe.

This charming tale of an overgrown pine that was always passed over for Christmas, and what his woodland friends do to help him.

We will be doing two activities with this book. First, we will make sugar cookies in the shape of Christmas trees and then decorate them. Then we are going to take extra tree decorations and decorate our lone little pine tree that is in our backyard. It was our Christmas tree last year, and we planted it after Christmas was over. I think we will cover some pine cones with peanut butter and bird seed and add some suet bars, as well. That tree is a favorite of our local birds.

I will post pictures of all our activities from this week on our Weekly Wrap-up.
