This year the 7th grade class will go on a storybook adventure! I will be reading from and Advent Storybook that has 24 stories to share about the advent season and what we all are actually waiting for. The summary of the book is as follows, " Benjamin Bear is so impatient for Christmas to come. To help the time pass more quickly his mother says that every night when he opens a door on his Advent calendar she'll tell him a story--24 stories about another little bear and his long, arduous journey to Bethlehem. The little bear, led by a shining star, meets many others on his travels across hot deserts, snowy mountains, through dark, lonely nights. His adventures, filled with acts of heroism and kindness and many small miracles, show him the path to the Christ Child. And by journey's end, Benjamin Bear-- and youngsters who share the stories and their simple morals along with him-- will be ready to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas." I look forward to reading the stories with them and sharing with them the meditations that Mrs. Peloquin writes up for each day. Merry Christmas!
