    Oh this brings back some memories! Isn’t reading to our kids (or ANY kids) one of the most amazing and memorable things you can do? I remember “Merry Christmas, Mouse” especially, and found your site originally from your great post on using old toothbrushes for art!

    I have a new crop of about 20 kids every holiday season and I LOVE to read a book called “The Christmas Orange” by Don Gilmor and Marie-Louise Gay. It’s about a spoiled young boy who doesn’t get everything he wants for Christmas so he sues Santa. It’s a good way to teach kids to be thankful for anything and everything they get for the holidays.

    Also check out Marla Frazee’s Santa Clause: The World’s Number One Toy Expert for a fresh take on how Santa finds just the right gift for kids. Readers will delight in the many cups of cocoa they find of Santa’s…and Frazee’s Caldecott award winning illustrations mean that every page is a present waiting to be unwrapped.
