It''s nearly Christmas, but the adults in Woodland are too busy buying presents, putting up their trees and decorating to have any time for holiday fun. This gives Franklin the turtle an idea. ?What if we go caroling?? he says to his friends. ?I bet that would get everyone into the Christmas spirit!? At first, they all agree it''s a great plan. But when caroling time comes, Franklin and Snail are the only two who show up in the town square. Though he''s disappointed, Franklin bravely begins singing all by himself, with Snail accompanying him on the harmonica. Slowly, people start to gather around. Soon they begin caroling, too. And before long, thanks to Franklin, everyone in town has found the holiday spirit! <BR<BRBased on the popular Franklin and Friends 3D-animated television program, this book highlights what a wonderful role model the beloved turtle Franklin can be. Here he shows young children that, even though they''re small, they can still make a difference in their own communities. It also teaches them how, when things don''t go according to plan, if you trust in yourself and follow your heart, you''re sure to end up doing the right thing. This title would be a perfect choice for a read-aloud during the holiday season, and could launch a discussion of what ?holiday spirit? means and how children can help foster it. It would also work beautifully for a character education lesson on caring, courage or initiative.
