We finished "A Christmas Carol" tonight. It was fun to read as usual. This will make the third year we've read it. Nothing holds a little boys attention like grouchy old Scrooges and scary ghosts! I'm glad that we started it early this year. The last few years we started the week before Christmas and didn't finish till New Years.
I hope to catch the 1984 version with George C. Scott on T.V. soon. Maybe I'll find the 1955 version with Fredric March in the "cheap DVDs" bin at Walmart.
Here are a few learning links to use if you too decide to read Dickens " A Christmas Carol "
Now we just have to decide on another book. I've put away Island of the Blue Dolphins for a while. We knew right away that we'd be bored to death. Maybe later huh?
Here are a few I'm considering. The last isn't a Christmas book but I think it's a strong contender! Any suggestions or opinions?
