THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER. CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS: rilyzmom@, KristyBartlett@, annwwins@
Books are beautiful at our house. Everyone, thankfully, loves to read. We have differing tastes, but we are all bookworms over here. Keeps us out of trouble.
And pulling out the Christmas books that have been in the garage for eleven months is great fun! This year, Candlewick Press  added a few to our collection. And I love them!
The Christmas Eve Ghost  by Shirley Hughes is a poignant tale of a mysterious sound and a Protestant English widow befriended by Irish Catholic neighbors. The illustrations are fantastic, as they are with all this author’s books, and the message is beautiful.
Rosemary Wells is another favorite author of mine. In On the Blue Comet  she tells the story of a boy separated from his dad during the depression. The older FishBoys enjoyed this tale of time travel.
The Story of Christmas  by Vivian French is a vivid retelling of the Biblical account. I love it when art represents Life in an accurate way.
Kate DiCamillo’s Great Joy  is a wonderful story of compassion at giving to those who have less than us. It’s a great lesson in sharing with those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
This week three LifeasMOM readers will win a set of these books.
Simply tell us your favorite holiday book.
This giveaway will be open until Sunday, December 19th at 8 pm, PST. Winner will be chosen randomly and notified via email. You must respond within 48 hours to claim your prize.
