Mistletoe: A Christmas Story

by Tad Hills

Are you ready for winter? Snow is falling all around and it's starting to feel like Christmas. Mistletoe is ready for a walk with her friend Norwell. But Norwell thinks it's too cold outside for an elephant. Instead, he enjoys time by the toasty fire. How will she get Norwell outside to listen to the snow? She rushes back home, climbs in the attic and finds just what she needs - yarn! "You can never have too much yarn, she says to herself." For the next few days, Mistletoe knits and knits. Do you know what she's making? Hills's colorful illustrations capture holiday cheer and friendship. Spend time with friends and find yourself in a field of snow, decorating a tree or eating cookies. A delightful story about a mouse and an elephant during Christmas time.
