House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

A Christmas Carol

We've been having a fun discussion about Charles Dickens and his classic A Christmas Carol at the online library Literature Alive! complete with a poll on which spirit is your favorite.

The Ghost of Christmas Past

The Ghost of Christmas Present

The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come

This is a nifty site where one can scroll down to see the picture versions of various Christmas Carol movies. Surprisingly, my 8 yr old was leaning over my shoulder to see the pictures and doesn't remember Dicken's famous piece. We'll watch The Muppet's Christmas Carol tonight to refresh her memory. The good readers at House of Literature assure me that it stays true to the original.

I found this Christmas Carol Study Guide by Rebecca Gilleland published by Progeny Press and have it on my wish list.

If anyone knows of a good study guide, please let me know.
