Christmas Reading:The Boy Of The Bells

Laurie’s note:  For the month of December, I’m sharing one of our family holiday traditions…reading Christmas books.  See what we’re reading.

Today we’re reading The Boy Of The Bells by Carly Simon, illustrated by Margot Datz.   The story tells of a boy named Ben who wants his sister to talk again after a year of silence.   And he has an idea.  He summons Santa early on Christmas eve to see if the jolly man can help.  There’s a subtle message about how doing one’s best and giving it all your have can change things.  Love this book!
