Ice Skates for Christmas
Anna asked for two things for Christmas: ice skates and a puppy. She's been a very good girl and Santa brought her both, plus a lovely outfit to wear while skating. Her mama knitted a stocking hat and mittens to go with the outfit. "Woof!" says the new puppy, warning Anna that ice is very slippery!
Anna takes a few cautious steps and then glides across the ice. What fun!
Oops! Anna falls, but isn't hurt. Her puppy runs to comfort her with a few licks on the face.
Puppy doesn't like ice, but he loves the snow. He bounds through the drifts piled around the pond and Anna laughs as she brushes him off. Now she knows what she will name him: Snowball!
