If it's Saturday, it must be Santa
Today was our annual Brunch with Santa at the library. I was all set to use the theme of "The Night Before Christmas," when it occurred to me that my new picture book would fit one of my alternate themes.
So, I put the Night Before Christmas books back on the Christmas book display and gathered up others. Then I threw in the new Jingle Bells pop-up book and gave the children all jingle bell bracelets to shake while singing the song with the book. This plus my new manuscript, and showing off some of the other new Holiday books rounded out the program.
This year's Santa was a semi-retired store Santa, with a REAL white beard. He was wonderful with the children. Much thanks to the Joppatowne Woman's Club for holding this event every year at our library for the past 30 years.
Wow. I just did a search of this blog and disccovered that I have talked about this program every year. So, if you are interested in the variety of themes I always use, click here and here. -wendieO
