As I shared last year, each of our children receives a Christmas book from us on December 25. This year's books, in no particular order, are:
The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore, illustrated by Arthur Rackham
This was my book when I was a child. I always liked the pictures in this edition of this classic poem and I hope that my child who receives this will do the same.
An Orange for Frankie by Patricia Polacco
Patricia Polacco's story about her uncle and his family brings tears to my eyes each time that I read it. We have checked this book out from the library numerous times; it is about time that it made its way onto our shelves.
