Books, Holidays, and Children December 16, 2008

I was listening to NPR this morning, and one of the segments was about a family that has a special collection of holiday books.  Many are about Christmas, but others are about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa and other winter holidays.  The box that holds these treasures is opened well before the decorations come out. 

What a wonderful idea!  A holiday book is both a celebration and an antidote to the frenzy that our holidays often become.  And what a great opportunity to share an experience with a young friend or relative!  One of the men at my church was reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which he is giving to a grandchild as a Christmas present.  (More on that wonderful title in a forthcoming blog entry.)

I loved Tales from Jabba’s Palace. It’s so great to see I’m not the only one. It was great to see how you came up with your idea for this story.
