I know Christmas stuff has been in the shops for ages, so this contribution to the December event might seem a little late, but don’t forget to check the Curriculum Resources collection for primary classroom seasonal fare.
This year how about an international favour:
Mexico – The miracle of the first poinsettia : a Mexican Christmas story by Joanne Oppenheim
USA – Pedro: the angel of Olvera Street by Leo Politi
Poland – Marek and Alice’s Christmas by Jolanta Starek-Corile (several dual language versions including this one in Spanish)
France – L’Enfant au grelot by Jacques-Rémy Girerd
International – Three wise women by Mary Hoffman
To round off this selection, a Christmas musical celebration, ‘Children of the World’ by Mary Green and Julie Stanley, and for those of you of a practical nature, ‘The Christmas craft book’ by Thomas Berger (many of the ideas contributed by parents of the Vrije School in Zeist, Holland).
