J is for Jesus by Crystal Bowman

This is a great book (board book format) that I bought last year. My youngest son especially loved reading this at bedtime during December. Because he loves it so much I am including it in our list for Advent this year. Making a candy cane ornament is an obvious choice to go with this book. However, in addition to ornaments, there are so many fun things you can do with candy canes. This webpage has a lot of great information and ideas for using candy canes. Last year we made the traditional beaded candy canes with propeller beads and pipe cleaners. Here is a new variation on this that we may try this year.
