National Pretzel Day!
Today is National Pretzel Day! I am not sure who makes up these "days" but I do like them. It is great when I can tie a special day into great books for kids.
This would be a perfect day for a story time. I would read books about pretzels and then serve pretzels as treats. I would even have the kids make pretend pretzels out of pipe cleaners or something like that.
Here are two of my favorite books that I would definitely read at story time. They are classics.
Pretzel by H.A. Rey is the classic story of a dachshund named Pretzel who saves the day. The kids always get a kick out of this book of puppy love.
Walter the Baker by Eric Carle is one of my favorite Eric Carle titles. I love he tells the story of how the pretzel was first made. It is a great story of ingenuity that works. A wonderful book.
Now I have made myself hungry~I think I'll have a pretzel!
