I WANT TO BE AN ELF!
Enjoy ten short poems about Christmas, just right for early readers. Rhyming text and full color photos address themes familiar to us all: shaking presents to guess what's inside, wondering if Santa will come even if our house doesn't have a chimney, and trying really hard not to be naughty!
I believe the right book can change someone's life. As a school librarian and library consultant, I experienced the joy of watching students squeal with delight over books that were perfect for them. When I was a child, that book for me was Curious George; I loved that he was curious, just like me!
My hope is that one of the books you see on this website will bring joy to you, to a friend, or to your children or students. Read, share and enjoy. And, please let me know what you think!
