A new tradition is born,
This review is from: A "Christmas Carol" and Other Christmas Books (Gift Edition) (Hardcover)
The time of year is right - and for the second time I'm preparing to indulge myself with a few "reads" from this lovely version of the Dickens Christmas stories.
It's great to have a pleasant, decent-quality, b & w illustrated item, to enjoy immersing myself in. The book also contains a history of the life of Dickens himself, and extensive explanatory notes for the aid of a newbie reader - or a more experienced forgetful one!
Christmas is about keeping traditions - this book will provide a lovely one for any family to start. How about reading aloud to the kids or "olds" by soft light - very atmospheric!
