This evening Paul and I sang in our carol concert, and Owl and Monkey came with Granny to watch. We were very pleased that some good friends came too (a home education group family), as we haven’t seen them for a while. By the time we got home, it was late and the little ones were asleep. While Paul took the babysitter and our friends home, I read to the big boys. We were very tired, and it didn’t feel like time for something new, so we got out our Usborne Christmas Treasury, an old favourite, and read the story of the Nutcracker.
This is a lovely illustrated collection of Christmas stories, carols, songs and activities and it is suitable for children of all ages.
