Dec 6: Tomten Story Table

Every year, we set up my favorite Christmas/winter story on the story table.  The Tomten and the Fox is a wonderful story about a Tomten who lives as a caretaker on a Swedish farm.  He notices a hungry fox bothering the chickens.  Instead of running him off, he offers to share his porridge.
 It was interesting to see the changes that the kids made in the setup this year.  A Mama fox joined the Papa fox  in the woodland glen, and the cowshed gained an inhabitant as well.
