The Friendly Beasts
Don't let the title of this book fool you, this is a Christmas book! Rebecca St. James is the artist who narrates and performs a classic Christmas Carol in this adorable children's story.
This story/song retells the birth of Jesus in the eyes of the animals. It includes five animals- a cow, a sheep, a camel, a donkey, and a dove. I love how each of these five animals shows Jesus some love with a gift! :) The book comes with a CD with Rebecca St. James singing the song and a total of 4 tracks. One of the tracks ins Rebecca's Christmas Memories which is sure to touch your heart. I am hoping to create memories with my children and I know this book will be a favorite Christmas story to read year after year.
Not only was the songs and narration done beautifully but the illustrator captures the birth of Jesus in brilliant colors. Anna Vojtech has illustrated several books for children including folktales and stories about nature.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
