Several generations of children have grown up enjoying the story of how the Grinch stole Christmas. They have laughed at the antics of Max the dog, and smiled at the Whos, who truly appreciate what Christmas is all about. Now little children can enjoy the story of the Grinch in a whole new way, with lace cards to make and other activities to try.

There are five silly lacing cards to lace. They have pictures of the Grinch, the Grinch stealing Christmas from the Whos, Cindy Lou Who, Max the dog in his Christmas hat, and Cindy Lou Who holding a Christmas Wreath. With five laces of different colors to work with, these cards are sure to give a young Grinch fan plenty to do.

To go with the cards there is a book of activities. The first two pages show children how to use the lace cards. This important information is followed by spot the difference pictures, a maze, a counting activity, a search and find activity, a word scramble, and at the back of the book there is an answers page – just in case you get stuck.

This novelty book would make a great holiday gift.
