December 6th - We wish you a Ripper Christmas - Book #6

Today is Day #6  of my Christmas Book Advent Calendar series. 

At the end of each post there will be a link up for you to share your top book/s too. 

My October 27th post will show you how I set up these bags. 


Here is bag #6




This book comes with a CD as well - so you can sing along if you like.

This review sums up the story so well -  for the source please click here

Colin Buchanan & Greg Champion have been creating Australian Christmas songs for many years, delighting Aussie youngsters and their teachers and parents with their humour and the catchiness of their tunes. We Wish You a Ripper Christmas continues that tradition, taking the chorus of an earlier offering (included in Fair Dinkum Aussie Christmas) and telling the story of Santa Wombat losing his naughty and nice list and needing some help from the other Aussie animals to find it in time to deliver the presents.
Set to the tune of We Wish You a Merry Christmas, the song is easy to sing, and children will join in on the chorus even on a first read. The story is humours, and is brought to life in detailed water colour illustrations by the amazing Roland Harvey. And, of course, the book is accompanied by a CD recording of the song, complete with karaoke track so that kids can sing it for themselves, either for performance or for fun.
Tasks for this book could look at the words that are in red and discuss why they are in red. 
This task from my pack below is a great task to use. Making connections to your world, another book and someone you have done. 


This pack has so many options for book responses for any book. 


Check out the Elf Diary templates -  you could take pictures each day and write a narrative/recount about the Elf escapades. 

Here is our elf - today he was found with some more of his friends. 


Keep coming back to check in to see what our elf has been up to!


Rules for the link up are - must be about a Christmas book - can be a link to your blog, but must contain a Christmas book post - can be a link to your store about a Christmas pack, but must be about a Christmas Book, not just Christmas themed. 
Visit at least one person who has linked up and leave a comment for them.
