February Books and Art Project

Book Recommendations
Go To Sleep Groundhog by Judy Cox, illustrated by Paul Meisel, published by Scholastic, New York. This is a cute little story to help the kids understand this holiday.
Winter White written by Joanne Ryder, illustrated by Carol Lacey, published by Morrow Junior Books, New York. This lovely fable is about two friends, a fox and a lemming, and their adventure with winter in the Arctic.

Art Project-Heart Embellished Frame
Use foam hearts available in most craft stores, or use a heart shaped punch and construction paper to embellish a cardboard or chipboard frame cut to whatever size you need. Let the kids use markers to add their own decorative ideas to each heart. Glitter, stick on gems, or cut outs from paper doilies can be used as well. In additon, this is a great way to add new life to an old unused frame you might pick up at a sale or flea market.
