An Orange for Frankie is my favorite holiday story because it reminds me of our holiday tradition of finding an orange in the toe of our Christmas stockings. My dad told me that when he was growing up oranges were very precious. It was a very special holiday treat to have oranges for Christmas.
To pass on this holiday tradition with your class you can read the book about Frankie and his special orange. Then you kids can make these little spice oranges to have in their homes for the holidays. (Click on the image to download the activity.)
