For today’s book for the Story Book Advent Darla from The Preschool Toolbox is introducing us to a new author and book – Can you see what I see: The night before Christmas by Walter Wick is an I-spy book for kids, on each page children hunt for items that Walter Wicks has hidden in the book. Featuring the classic Clement Moore’s Poem ‘Twas the Night before Christmas with double spread pictures featuring scenes and a phrase from the poem as well as list of items to find in the picture. Books like this are great and work really well for journeys which many of us will take over the festive season as children can hunt for the items to spend time on the journey or for spending time whilst you have jobs to do around the home preparing for the big day.
To accompany the book Can you see what I see: The night before Christmas Darla from The Preschool Toolbox creates a fabulous North Pole “I-Spy” Scope – a double craft and interactive tool for kids, with just a few items from the Christmas Craft box you have a fantastic North Pole which turns into a Scope to spy Santa this Christmas.
