For Advent we open a "new" Christmas book each day and do a fun activity around the book. The kids love this and enjoy seeing old favorites as well as new books to explore. This week for Muffin Tin Monday, we read Jingle the Christmas Clown by Tomie dePaola. This is a wonderful story set during the Middle Ages in Europe. A traveling circus troop comes to a familar village and finds that most of the villagers have moved on to the big city to find work. The traveling circus decides to leave the baby animals and a young clown behind because they need to rest. The baby animals and clown decide to put on a free show for the elderly of the village.
