Table Talk for All I Want For Christmas

We would like to encourage you to share a family meal and Gracieland together. Each week we will be posting some discussion starters that you can share with your family. Share the webstrip with your kids, grab a plate, pull up a chair, and talk.

Ask your child:

Why is Gracie disappointed?

Tell me about a time when you were disappointed?

Do you think teachers sometimes play favorites?

Who would you most want to be in the Christmas play?
