Buon Natale, little ones!
It’s the Christmas holiday season and Oma has been busy, just like Santa’s elves, preparing for this special season!
Along with all the decorating, wrapping of presents, and baking I have prepared a special story to share with you too!
written & illustrated by
Tomie dePaola (pronounced Tommy da-POW-la) was best known for his books for children. He had a five-decade writing and illustrating career during which he published more than 270 books including My First Passover; which you can find Oma has previously read to you, in her Reading Room too!
Oma loves Mr. dePaola’s stories and Jingle the Christmas Clown is another one of her favorites.
The magic of Christmas prevails in this story of an Italian village that needed to make changes to the traditional Christmas-Eve circus they watched every year. Jingle and his baby animals help everyone to remember how, even though sometimes we must make changes to our traditions, keeping love in our hearts is the most important thing – as they put on a show that no one could ever forget.
Be sure to join Oma in her Reading Room as we share together – Tomie dePaola‘s heart-warming story of a traveling circus and a very special little clown.
Until next time…
remember Oma is sending you her
hugs and her blessings!
I do hope you’ll catch them and hold them
