Take Time To Read!

As this is the month of Decem­ber, I would like to share one of the best Christ­mas books to read to a child, The Christ­mas Mir­a­cle of Jonathan Toomey. The premise of the book is the clash of inno­cent per­cep­tions of a young boy with the down­cast spir­it of a griev­ing wid­ow­er. The ensu­ing con­fronta­tions are humor­ous and poignant.

It is a touch¬≠ing sto¬≠ry that cap¬≠tures the beau¬≠ty of the sea¬≠son as seen through the eyes of a young child. It is a book that high¬≠lights the trans¬≠for¬≠ma¬≠tion of a man dis¬≠il¬≠lu¬≠sioned with every¬≠thing to grad¬≠u¬≠al¬≠ly find¬≠ing the joy of life. 

The real¬≠is¬≠tic, beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly drawn illus¬≠tra¬≠tions make it a believ¬≠able tale. If there is no child to read to, I sug¬≠gest you read this one to your¬≠self. You won‚Äôt be sor¬≠ry you did.

While many of us may have dif­fer­ent tra­di­tions and cel­e­bra­tions, our hope is that we all find joy in this hol­i­day season.

Mer¬≠ry Christ¬≠mas or Hap¬≠py Hanukkah to all!
