Christmas Reading: Holly and Ivy

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’s book is The Story Of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden, illustrated by Barbara Cooney.   A heartwarming story about Christmas wishes, Ivy, an orphan, wants a doll and a grandmother, Holly, a doll, wants a little girl to love her, and a couple wants a child to share their holiday.

This is the sort of story that reminds me how fortunate I am to have my wonderful family.

Christmas Reading: Night Tree

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.

Our Christmas book today is Night Tree by Eve Bunting. The story is about a family that travels into the woods one evening before Christmas and hang treats they’ve made for the animals. We like to make goodies and hang them on a tree outside.

P.S. – Make sure you add a Christmas Treasure Hunt Book to your reading list. 🙂
