Ardith Magee and the Christmas Shopping Spree (Younger Readers)
Readers Theater Scripts
Ardith's pets buy advent calendars, acoustic guitars, antbrittle, ankle bracelets, candied applies, and airline tickets to Australia. On Christmas morning Ardith's mother receives a box of Aunt Anna's All-American Apricot Jellies and Jams. Her father receives a pair of hot pink angora socks. By now, of course, you've noticed that Ardith's Christmas is filled with "A" words! The best gift, however is an L word - LOVE, and that gift is given when the antosaurus dries his tears and wishes everyone a "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"
