Moose, marvelous moose! Who doesn’t love a moose?
As I wrote WHEN A TREE GROWS, I assumed that there must, of course, be a day of celebration for the moose.
I googled “National Moose Day” and found a few results. Alas, January 15, 2016 seems to be the last time this important holiday was observed!
Clearly, it is time to re-energize this special day for Alces alces. If you’d like to join me, here are a few ideas:
Gather your favorite books starring moose characters and have a read-a-thon! Share your favorite books with the #NationalMooseDay hashtag on social media.
Don’t have a moose book on hand? Head to Kohl’s with $5 and get yourself the fabulous Oliver Jeffers’ THIS MOOSE BELONGS TO ME. For another $5, add the amazing, cuddly bean-shaped Moose stuffie shown above! Profits from Kohl’s Care merchandise supports happier and healthier communities nationwide, totalling almost $340 million to date.
Convert your brown paper lunch bag into a moose puppet! The link will bring you to simple step directions courtesy of The Romantic Homeschooler.
Not ready to pre-order? Then ask your friendly librarian to order a copy for the public or school library near you. They’ll let you know when the book has arrived and can be checked out.
Even though National Moose Day 2019 will have passed, you can celebrate by sharing a review online at Goodreads or Amazon. This author will be oh-so-grateful. 😉
Three cheers for Moose!
