This is the Fall Holidays and Holydays stories written in Spirit Play format. Contains all card materials and extension materials including art extensions, feast ideas, and display pages. Only a few objects needed for some stories.

“You have captured the heart of the curriculum, enhanced it with great pictures, and given fail-proof instructions. I am just delighted that you have made the contents of the curriculum available in this new way, and extended its outreach. What a tremendous lot of work and research and resources you have put into this project. I am deeply appreciative that you have made my ideas and writing come to life in this new form you created.”
