Greetings of the season my friends!
It's Jennifer from Stories and Songs in Second, stopping in during this busy holiday time to share good cheer and a unique type of reading celebration with you! This post was written last December as the sun rose over Bonita Beach in southwest Florida.....a place that my own family has called "home" for the holidays for sixteen years.
Many of my siblings are wake up slowly each morning when we gather here, warming their hands around a mug of coffee or cocoa, with books open on their laps. We were fortunate to be "raised as readers" by our Mom and Dad, and I am here today to share a creative way to help other teachers and parents encourage children to make time to honor and enjoy reading magic at home!
Today's idea was inspired by a very special Nordic picture book and an Icelandic tradition that I recently learned about! I hope that you'll find that it is an easy one to adapt for use at home during the winter break, and then implement in your classroom afterwards!
