November’s Virtual Book Club is about the author Tomie dePaola! There were so many to choose from but we decided to select his books about Strega Nona first. There will be more to come this month too! We had so much fun the past few weeks reading all of Tomie’s books about Strega Nona. We’d loved to share with you a few activities to go along with the Strega Nona books.
If you aren’t familiar with the book Strega Nona here’s a video clip about it to view.
As we approuach the holiday season think of ways that you can encourage your children to reach out to others and help. In the video above it shows how love and humor can sometimes be the best medicine. In the book Merry Christmas Strega Nona Big Anthony has a special gift for her at the end that could inspire other thoughtful acts of kindness with your family. It might be a fun way to involve your children in teaching Gratitude and Giving.
