December Book-a-Day 8: I’ll Be Home For Christmas (Toot & Puddle)


Each day in December we will be sharing one of our favorite Christmas storybooks and an activity to go along. (Affiliate link included for your convenience.) 

Do you know Toot and Puddle? They are two of the most lovable storybook characters you'll ever meet. If the story isn't darling enough, Holly Hobbie's intricate and witty illustrations will leave you smiling.



In I'll Be Home For Christmas, Toot is out traveling the world while Puddle is preparing for Christmas at home in Woodcock Pocket. No matter what winter weather may try to delay him, Toot is determined to return home to his buddy in time for Christmas. It's the Toot's lucky nut, given to him by his aunt in Scotland, that helps save the day in the end.


A fun craft to go along with this book is making Good Fortune Walnuts. It is a Victorian tradition to hang gilded walnuts containing fortunes on the tree.
