Stranger in the Woods

On Friday, we read Stranger in the Woods: A Photographic Fantasy by Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick.  The animals in the story are curious as to who the stranger in the woods might be.  When the bravest of animals decide to take a closer look they realize the stranger, a snowman, comes baring gifts.  The wildlife photography is beautiful and the tale, charming.  

The children in the story hide and watch as the animals enjoy the treats they've left for them.  We made bird feeders by following a recipe with a few simple ingredients.  They were drying over the weekend and will hopefully make their way home tomorrow to be hung for the birds to enjoy.
