December 13th...

Today is National Cocoa Day!
While you're sipping a warm cup of chocolate we invite you to take a moment to realize that today also marks that there are TWELVE DAYS left until Christmas*!

We found a great article on the background of the song on the suite 101 website.
Can you name each present gifted in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas?
We'll start you off:  A Partridge in a pear tree!

Today we are reading:
My Christmas safari by Fran Manushkin ; pictures by R.W. Alley.
In this fun adaption of the holiday classic, a young girl dreams up a special holiday gift: a safari trip with her father!

We also like:
Twelve gifts for Santa Claus / Mauri Kunnas with Tarja Kunnas ; translated from the Finnish by Tim Steffa.
A young elf decides to give Santa one present for each of the twelve days preceding Christmas.
*If this is the holiday you celebrate this month!
