Thank you Krista for the button!
Are you guys as excited as I am for the Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale? I am hoping to stock up on some holiday stuff and clip art. And, luckily I was able to find time to finish up two new holiday books for my Holiday Emergent Reader bundle. (So if you've already bought it, go re-download to get those 2 for free!)
Introducing: I Am Ready for Diwali: An Emergent Reader about the Hindu Festival of Lights. This is a great holiday to compare to some of the winter holidays we typically celebrate because of it's focus on light and family.
The second book is about Eid al-Adha, the most important Muslim holiday. The time it is celebrated varies...this year it was celebrated in October. But since it is the main holiday, I wanted to include it in my holiday unit, particularly because I have a Muslim student this year. It, too, lends itself to comparison with Christmas, Hanukkah, etc. It is so interesting to see the many parallels between holidays in different cultures.
I hope you like the new books and enjoy the sale! Have a great week!
