Where does the time go? Can you believe it’s the 6th December already? So much to do and so little time to do it in.
But there’s always time to snuggle up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate 🙂
Books for little ones
Brothers Grimm story of a selfless little girl who illustrates the true meaning of Christmas. A good one to share before the season of excess completely takes hold.
Books for Older Children
I first read What Katie Did at School when I was about 10 and I remember being awestruck by the Christmas boxes they received whilst at boarding school. No real life stocking could ever hope to compete. Even better, the book is available for free from the wonderful people at Project Gutenberg
Books for the Grown Ups
Forget A Christmas Carol, if you want to be terrified this Christmas read
Written by the author of Fried Green Tomatoes… It’s another heartwarming tale. Set in the Deep South, in Alabama, it’s a very different scenario to the usual snow and mistletoe offerings; but it leaves you feeling good. And that’s what you want at this time of year. Right? 🙂
