We haven’t made it out in the snow to visit the library. We don’t have many books to share but we did discover a whole year’s worth of fun in Mrs.Muddle’s Holidays.
In Mrs. Muddle’s Holidays by Laura F. Nielsen, the neighbors on Maple street celebrate numerous holidays. They celebrate the “regular” holidays- Halloween and Fourth of July, as well as some lesser known holidays, like pioneer day. But when Mrs. Muddle moves to Maple Street, she introduces them to a whole new array of holidays- First Robin’s Day, Watermelon Day (when the children carve Watermelons to look like Mrs. Muddle’s favorite celebrities), the Birthday of the Inventor of the Roller Skate, and more. The children and parents have so much fun with Mrs. Muddle’s holidays, they come up with a way to celebrate Mrs. Muddle.
We found this to be a cheery book in the midst of a gloomy month. From the whimsical watercolor drawings to the festive text that celebrates a diversity of children and traditions, this is a book that will bring a smile to your face!
We’ve already added one of Mrs. Muddle’s holidays to our calendar, Let’s Pretend it’s Summer Day– celebrated in the middle of a February snow!
We borrowed this book from our library and we’d suggest that you do the same– and maybe even buy a copy–if you fall in love with it like we have.
