This packet is filled with tons of fun activities! It is based on the book Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (creators of Room on the Broom).
Stick Man goes for a jog one day. Many things happen to him. He is snatched by a dog, thrown into the river by a girl, used as an arm for a snowman, and even put into the fireplace! Of course, Santa comes along, and Stick Man helps him deliver the presents! The story is truly adorable and one of my favorites!
The book is for sale for $4 in the Scholastic SeeSaw December issue.
