My favorite Christmas story isn’t truly Christmas story. But the first scene takes place as they prepare for Christmas and the first line is “Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents.”
Do you know it? I am betting you do.
I love Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I cannot tell you how many times I read it.
And this Christmas, a new movie version releases. It looks wonderful. I can’t wait to see it.
Here is a link to the Trailer:
I went to look up Christmas stories and I was surprised to find a real Christmas story by Louisa May Alcott. It is available free online. I read it and loved it.
I posted the link for you because there are a lot more Christmas stories, activities and recipes on this website. I wish you all your perfect dream of Christmas.
My Christmas picture book is Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? No trailer, sadly...but it is also available in Spanish. Mamá, Existe Santa Claus?
Blurb: Lucas’s best friend says there is no Santa Claus. That it is just grownups fooling you. Lucas is sure his friend is wrong. Why would grownups fool kids? When he asks his mom to for the truth she invites him to become a dreamkeeper.

"What Berger has done with this story is come up with a unique and special way of answering this question that helps young people embrace the spirit of the season. As someone who believes Santa is alive and well, I loved this book and its wonderful message."
