Making and Giving Gifts
This month, we’ve included one of our bonus
matching games. “Snowmen and More” consists
of 10 delightful photos of snow creatures. After
playing this game, your child may be inspired to
head outdoors to build an unusual snowman. If
you live in a warmer clime (lucky you!), your child
might enjoy drawing pictures of his or her own
imaginary snow creatures.
Perhaps you will be inspired to make your own
photo-matching game. Print out two copies of 10
favorite photos, glue them to blank index cards,
and write simple labels below each picture.
If you and your child make our “Penguin Cup
Cozy” (page 31) to give as gifts, consider making
several homemade photo-matching games, too. It’s
a great way to share vacation or family photos with
friends and relatives near or far.
Happy holidays from all of us at
Highlights™ Genies!

My Jacket
By Marguerite Chase McCue
Once again it’s winter.
Outside it’s icy cold.
I found my favorite jacket
But now it looks so old.
My jacket fit a year ago
But I’ve grown big and tall.
I think I need a new one.
This jacket is too small.

It’s coming!
Spot can smell it.
He hopes it comes soon.
Splinter’s waiting, too.
It’s here!

Learning the Words
By Lissa Rovetch • Art by Amy Wummer
“Guess what!” said Indi. “Ms. French asked me if I’d like
to sing a solo for our class’s winter party.”
“That’s super,” said her big sister, Arizona.
“I’m glad Ms. French didn’t ask me to sing all by myself,”
said Tex. “I’d be afraid I’d forget the words to the song.”
December 2017
and Ind
“Oh no, I didn’t think of that,” said Indi. “I’m singing
the first verse. What if I can’t remember the words and
I mess up the whole song?”
“Don’t worry,” said Arizona. “I’ll teach you the memory
trick that helped me when I was in the school play. You
say the words over and over until they are stuck in your
head. Then you think of a picture to go along with them.”
December 2017
Indi used Arizona’s
memory trick all week.
She sang her solo when
she helped set the table.
She sang her solo when
she tied her shoelaces.
She even sang her solo when
she played with her friends at recess.
December 2017
The day of the party finally arrived. Ms. French
welcomed the family members to the classroom. When it
was time for her solo, Indi remembered every word.
As everybody ate the
goodies the kids had
made, Arizona gave Indi
a big hug and said,
“You did a fantastic job!”
“Thanks for teaching
me your memory trick,”
said Indi. “And thanks
for being such a great
big sister.”

Red Rooster crowed on the roof of the shed.
“Hurry, you people! Get out of bed!”
Then he flew down from the roof of the shed.
“That’s done,” he said and went back to bed.

Meera and Kiran
A Gift
for You!
By Ana Galán • Art by Sonal and Sumit
Ma, Meera, and Kiran were making jam with the
strawberries they had picked up from their garden.
“Oh my,” said Ma. “What are we going to do with so
many jars of jam?”
“We can give them out as gifts!” said Meera.
“What a good idea!” said Ma.
Meera and Kiran decorated the jars with pretty fabric and
put them in a basket.
They were heading out the door when
Kiran saw the postman.
“A gift for you!” said Kiran and
he handed him a jar.
“Thank you, Meera and Kiran!”
said the postman.
When they passed the fire station,
they saw a firefighter.
“A gift for you!” said Meera.
“Thank you!” said the firefighter.
“This looks delicious!”
December 2017
They crossed the street and
gave a jar to the traffic officer.
When they went into the
library, they presented another
to the librarian.
As they headed back to their

strawberry jam!

But Ma had a surprise. She opened the pantry door
and pulled out a big jar of their yummy jam. “A gift for
you!” she said.
“Thank you, Ma!” they cheered, excited to enjoy their
special treat.

a Winter Day
By Eileen Spinelli • Art by Gillian Flint
Building snowmen, lots of fun.
Sledding in the wintry sun.
Cold and wet now. Time to go.
Trudging home across the snow.
Cocoa, blankets, books await.
Indoor things to celebrate.
December 2017
How many snowmen did the children build?
How many children are still sledding?
How many are heading home?
What else will you count?

Plane View
By Heather Tekavec • Art by Sue King
Arvind buckled up for his first plane ride.
“How high will we fly?” he asked his dad.
“Very high,” said Dad.
Soon the plane started moving. It went faster and
faster. Then it lifted off the ground.
December 2017
Arvind looked out the
window. Everything below
was getting smaller. Arvind
watched for a while. “Will
I see Grandma’s apartment
from up here?”
he asked.
“Maybe,” said Dad. “Look, there are the farm fields
we passed when we drove to Grandma’s last year.”
“From up here, they look like the squares on the
quilt that Grandma made me,” said Arvind.
“And there’s the big lake where we went swimming
last summer,” said Dad.
“From up here, it looks like a pond,” said Arvind.
December 2017
“There’s Grandma’s city,” said Dad. “One of
those buildings is her apartment.”
“From up here,” said Arvind, “the buildings
look like my blocks.”
Soon the plane
started going down.
As the wheels touched
the ground, Arvind
felt a big bump.
December 2017
The plane slowed
to a stop. When it was
safe to unbuckle their
seat belts, Arvind and
his dad stood up and
gathered their things.
When they reached the bottom
of the stairs, Arvind looked up and
laughed. “Everything’s the right size
again. Except, from down here, the
airplanes in the sky look like little
“They sure do,” said Dad. “Come on.
Let’s go find Grandma. I bet she looks
the same as ever.”

Staying Warm
in Winter
By Beverly J. Letchworth • Art by Priscilla Lamont
Snow fell silently. In the oak tree, young Squirrel
shivered. “Mama, how will we keep warm this
winter?” he asked.
“We will use our bushy tails like blankets to keep
warm,” she said.
December 2017
The next day, Squirrel was playing with his friend
Mouse. He asked, “Mouse, what do you do in winter
to keep warm?”
“If it gets too cold, I’ll stay in my underground nest
and feast on the nuts and seeds I’ve stored,” said Mouse.
December 2017
A few days later, Squirrel saw his friend Woodchuck.
He said, “Woodchuck, how do you keep warm in
winter? I use my tail. Mouse stays in her underground
nest. What do you do?”
“We hibernate. We sleep in our den all winter.
And that’s where I’m headed right now. Good night!”
December 2017
Squirrel turned and headed home. But he almost
tripped over his friend Box Turtle, who was digging
in a pile of fallen leaves. “Hello, Turtle,” said Squirrel.
“Are you getting ready for winter? We squirrels use our
tails to keep warm. Mouse stays in her underground
nest, and Woodchuck hibernates. What do you do?”
“Winter means a long sleep for me, too,” said Turtle.
“I’m making a bed in these leaves. I’ll stay here
until spring.”
December 2017
When Squirrel arrived back at his tree,
he saw his friend Robin. “Robin, what do
you do in winter?” asked Squirrel.
“I don’t stick around,” said Robin. “I fly
south to find more food.”
Every creature has its way, thought
Squirrel as he scampered up the tree. Then
he snuggled up next to Mama, wrapped his
bushy tail around himself, and took a nap.
