Christmas Traditions: Stories
We read aloud at Christmas too. We left most of our Christmas picture books back in Florida (hard-backs). But some we have some of them with us, and we're putting Emma Lucy's e-reader to good use. These are some of our favorites:
Silver Packages, by Cynthia Rylant
almost everything in the Connie Willis collection Miracle and Other Christmas Stories
The Kid Hangs up His Stocking, by Jacob Riis
How Santa Claus Came to Simpsons's Bar, by Bret Harte
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, by Barbara Robinson
And, hands-down, our all-time, no contest favorite; the one we've already read at least three times this year; the one my children quote phrases from year-round:
A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas.
What are your favorite Christmas read-alouds?
