Mrs. Claus Takes a Vacation, Sale, and Give Away

Now that we are full on into the holiday season I just have to share this darling book with all of you.  Are you familiar with Mrs. Claus Takes A Vacation written by Linas Alsenas?

Mrs. Claus is tired of staying home all winter long.  She heads off on vacation leaving Santa home to do the Christmas chores.  Delightful pictures show her lounging at the beach, dancing at holiday festivals, lunching on sushi, and in general having a great time.  Meanwhile, (back at the ranch... or should I say North Pole) Santa is home baking cookies, decorating the house, and trimming the tree.  This darling story has a lovely and heartwarming ending.  This is a great book to add to your holiday collection.

Here is a little freebie with some gingerbread graphing and practice with ordinal numbers.  I just figured if Santa could have some fun with gingerbread cookies, so can our kiddos!
