Miss Holly is Too Jolly!
By Dan Gutman
Most enjoyed by 1st through 3rd graders

Here's another adventure in the ever popular 'My Weird School' series. Miss Holly is in charge of this year's Christmas program and she is really getting into the holiday spirit. But for which holiday? There's Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa and Miss Holly is determined to celebrate all of them. Will the kids be able to keep up?

Under all the fun, there's some real learning here. Short descriptions of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa introduce kids to the significance of each holiday . Our 1st and 2nd graders absolutely love this series after reading it as part of the Monarch Award program. So if you're still in the holiday spirit, join Miss Holly and be jolly!
