We listened to a wonderful story called How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss. The Grinch is a creature with a heart two sizes too small. He lives on a high mountain just north of Whoville, which is the home of merry and kind Whos. The Grinch hears all the noisy Christmas festivities from Whoville. Very annoyed, he enters a home through the chimney and removes their Christmas presents, roast 'beast', and decorations, preventing Christmas from coming. However, he learns that although he 'stole' the Christmas presents and decorations from the Whos, Christmas comes just the same. He realizes Christmas is more than just gifts. Because of this, his heart grows three times larger. He returns all the presents and trimmings. The community of Whos welcomes him wholeheartedly.
After listening to this story we wrote how we could make the Grinch smile. How would you the Grinch smile?
