Adding Special MerryMakers Friends To Our You've Been Book'd Bags!

We are adding something new and special to our monthly You've Been Book'd Bags at our school. 
Last month when I was getting the holiday book list ready, I added one of my favorite Hanukkah stories, Goodnight Bubbala, to the list.

As shared online, 

In the small blue room there was a bubbala... So begins a delightful twist on the classic bedtime book! Readers, young and old, will be captivated by the Jewish charm of Goodnight Bubbala by Sheryl Haft, illustrated by Jill Weber. This matching plush bunny is dressed ready for bed in warm red pajamas with snowflake details. With soft plush fur and snuggly "shmatta" blanket this is an endearing gift set – perfect for bedtime, new parents, baby showers, first birthdays, and Hanukkah!

This zesty parody of one of America’s favorite picture books offers a very different bedtime routine: one that is full of family exuberance and love. Instead of whispers of “hush,” this bedtime includes dancing and kvelling, and of course, noshing—because this little bunny is a Jewish bunny, and this joyous book celebrates the Jewish values of cherishing your loved ones, expressing gratitude, and being generous.

You can also listen to the author, Sheryl Haft, read it on Brightly Storytime Together here. 

As I was looking online for a little more information about the book, I found that our friends at MerryMakers have a Goodnight Bubbala Bunny available! 

I thought, Why not add the Goodnight Bubbala Bunny with the book to the You've Been Book'd bag? The kids would LOVE this! 
And guess what?  

They did!  The first graders who got the Goodnight Bubbala bag first were so happy and excited.  I can't wait to hear what the other teachers and students say after sharing the book and bunny too. 

You will find Goodnight Bubbala here on the MerryMakers site.
And this is just a start as I plan to add more of the MerryMakers friends and books to our You've Been Book'd program.
