christmas_carol_covRay and I decided to begin reading A Christmas Carol Special Edition to our children last night. Charles Dickens, with his 1843 language, captivated our older kiddos and had them guessing what was coming next, while the younger of our six either fell asleep or were hung up on the movie that’s coming out. Either way you slice it, the Carol gives a valuable lesson for all ages, with this Special Edition including Christian insights and discussion questions for families. A great gift to bring along to all of those Holiday parties, if nothing more than to spark good conversation.
