Christmas is right around the corner and with all the hustle and bustle of buying gifts, finding deals and planning where you are going and what you are doing there are times that the meaning of Christmas can seem to be pushed under the rug. I know my own children are excited to see what Santa will bring them this years and while Santa is a part of Christmas in our house I want our children to know what Christmas is, since they are young it is a bit difficult to get them to understand more then just the basics of us celebrating Christmas because it is Jesus’ Birthday, so we work on getting them to understand that Christmas is also a time for giving and that giving to others can make you feel very happy to know that you made someone else very happy.
The book Shall I Knit You a Hat, is about a little rabbit whose mother knitted him a hat because a snow storm was coming and it was going to be a very cold stormy Christmas. The little rabbit came up with the idea to surprise all his friends with hats of their own to keep warm during the storm, so his mother knitted hats for all of his friends and then they gave them to their friends.
This book is another great example to show my children the spirit of giving during this busy holiday season. My kids loved the story of the little rabbit and what he did for his friends.
Not only is this book an adorable book the profits go to help children who are in need. This book goes along with the program that Save The Children has set up, for knitting hats for new born babies in Africa and Latin America. You can request a knitting kit and knit a cap and send it back to them and then it will go to a newborn baby to help keep them warm. You can find more information here about the program.
