I shall presume you have some knowledge of The Halloween Hare, how he tells secrets about gardeners to the Christmas Cottontail so when the Christmas Cottontail visits with Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, he knows whether to plant seeds and bulbs for spring flowers in your garden or sit outside while Santa distributes a few gifts inside.
If not, well, of course, it isn’t too late to start learning so your spring isn’t ruined.
That’s right your spring.
The Christmas Cottontail would never ruin your Christmas Day.
But you could have fewer spring flowers if the Halloween Hare told the Christmas Cottontail… oh, it’s just too awful to think that anyone who reads my little blog is other than a good gardener!
Whether or not you believe in the Christmas Cottontail (or the Halloween Hare), don’t risk it.
Do these things instead:
- Try to be a good gardener.
- Read The Christmas Cottontail either to yourself or preferably to all the children so they will know about him. To be really good, you should also read The Halloween Hare.
Then wait until spring and hope you were good enough. The flowers will tell!
If you don’t own a copy of The Christmas Cottontail or, for that matter, The Halloween Hare… a simple purchase can add them to your library. Ask for either or both books at your favorite bookstore or order them online from any place that sells books. I also have a limited supply if you want signed books.
All the details and all the links are on my children’s book page!
