Minerva Louise on Christmas Eve

"Minerva Louise on Christmas Eve" by Janet Morgan Stoeke was the first picture book about Minerva Louise I had read, and it left me wanting more!

Minerva Louise is a chicken who thinks about the world around her too literally much like the character Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish.

At Christmas time, Minerva noticed Santa Claus around the farm but thought he was a farmer wearing red hat, his reindeer were dressed up goats, and his sleigh was a truck without wheels!

Minerva Louise followed Santa Claus down the chimney of his farmer's house.

"Hey, Mr. Farmer, what are you doing? Unpacking? But this is where my farmers live. Now take your stuff out of their socks! And don't eat that! (milk and cookies) It's their breakfast! What will my farmers say when they wake up?"

It is such a silly book, and with your help, your children will be laughing so hard! They will surely request it to be read again and again!
