Friday Reads: Finding Christmas by Robert Munsch
The story is about a little girl who always finds her holiday gifts. But not this year. This year they are hidden so well she can't find them at all. It's Christmas eve and she is distressed that there are no presents at all for her. Then, in talking to her friend across the street, she realizes that her parents had a REALLY good hiding spot this year...in a box on the back of the Santa's sleigh her parents put on the roof. She climbs out onto the roof and, sure enough, the presents are inside. And then she falls in and can't get out.
Imagine her parents surprise when they bring in the box and find her asleep inside! I don't want to spoil what they did with her so you should definitely check it out and find out for yourself.
The girls haven't spent much time "re-reading" this on their own, but they have brought it to me several times for another snuggle and read. I think it is going to be the book that ends up being a family classic around here.
