Season's Readings

Book List

November 24, 1999

Every Christmas needs one good read-aloud story to pull at the heart strings. Yes, you could watch "It's a Wonderful Life" (we do), but we're talking about having a house full of family and friends that serves as the perfect captive audience for reading aloud.

Try these:

"The Polar Express," by Chris Van Allsburg

"A Christmas Memory," by Truman Capote

"Star Mother's Youngest Child," by Louise Moeri

"A Child's Christmas in Wales," by Dylan Thomas

"A Christmas Carol," by Charles Dickens

"The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey," by Susan Wojciechowski

"Santa Calls," by William Joyce

-- Valerie & Walter's Best Books for Children by Valerie V. Lewis and Walter M. Mayes
