Christmas in July and a Blog Makeover

This month I participated in a Christmas in July book exchange.  This lovely little activity was put together by Randee at How About Them Apples?, Nicole at First Grade OWLS, and Jackie at Here We Go Loopty Loo.  We had to choose a children's book and come up with some activities to go with the it.  I chose the oh so wonderful book Olivia by Ian Falconer.  You can download the activities I put together for Olivia by clicking the image below.
Thanks ladies for hosting this super fun party.  I cannot wait to get my book! :)   Everybody make sure to check out these three fab blogs! Click here to go to Randee's blog to see what everyone else got!

Also, the super sweet Texas ladies at Peace, Love and Kindergarten have had a blog makeover!  Click their button to check out their psychedelic new look!
