Synopsis: It's Christmas Eve, and big sister Ruby won't let Max wait up to see Santa Claus. But, as always, the irrepressible Max has his own ideas about that!

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Xerox some pages from the book ahead of time, and cut them out. Have the children color them, and glue them onto sticks to re-enact the story.
•  Draw Santa coming to visit you on Christmas.
•  Make a Christmas tree bookmark.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
