Elf on the Shelf Book Reading Idea
We woke up yesterday morning to find him sitting on the couch reading! He must love to read because he had a huge pile and the kids were excited because they saw that he loves the same books they do!! You can pick any book you want to have your Elf read, or just sit him on the bookshelf looking at books. It’s a simple but fun way to also encourage your kids to keep reading!
What is the Elf on the Shelf Tradition?
Year after year, children and adults alike are baffled by the mystery of how Santa really knows who’s been naughty or nice. After much urging by the elves and Mrs. Claus, Santa has allowed his biggest secret to be revealed in The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition. At the start of each Christmas season, the elf appears to serve as Santa’s eyes and ears, traveling back to the North Pole each and every night to make a detailed report of the day’s activities. This keepsake gift set includes a light skin, blue eyed boy North Pole pixie scout elf and a hardbound watercolor picture book. Children can register their elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa.
