Annual Christmas Reads

Most of these books were integral parts of my childhood--Angel Mae, Silent Night, The Donkey's Dream, The Clown of God--all stories my mom read to me over and over and over again. I felt old, searching for images and discovering you can't even buy some of the books anymore. What a travesty! The Others have added a couple of favorites since I was little. These are such the best stories ... try a few yourself, this Christmas!
