5 Days of Christmas Books: A Christmas Carol

This is day four in my 5 day series: 5 Days of Christmas Books. So far we have done 12 Days of Christmas, The Polar Express, and Frosty the Snowman. Today’s book is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. This book is a true holiday classic that has been done and redone many times over in book, video, and play formats. This teaches a fabulous lessons about the spirit of Christmas and being giving and generous in this life.
