Ho ho ho! It’s Christmas Eve, and here’s my mini Christmas book haul. The hustle and bustle of Christmas isn’t going to leave much time for reading, especially when I’m spending time with some of our children’s favorites from Jan Brett, Chris Van Allsburg, and Charles Dickens. We just finished J.K. Rowling’s new book The Christmas Pig, which turned out lovely. I’m hoping to read these books below over Christmas break on into January.

–The Old Magic of Christmas –Yuletide Traditions for the Darkest Days of the Year by Linda Raedisch-
