It is the day before Christmas and the preparations for the big day are in full swing. Everyone is showing their Christmas spirit, or are they? As in his other books (which I love for older elementary kids), Bloch creates a story using common sayings and idioms to describe the confusion for the big day. Great fun and opportunity for discussion. Wonderful springboard for challenging older students to write a similar story.
