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.
