Here is Ms. Laurie's pick for December 23rd.
Who is Stealing the 12 Days of Christmas? by Martha Freeman
This is a great seasonal mystery book. Someone in Chickadee Court has been stealing all the neighborhood's 12 days of Christmas decorations. It is up to Alex and his best friend Yasmeen to crack the case and catch the Christmas crook. This is a great chapter book for older elementary school kids to enjoy while preparing for Christmas.
