We love Christmas stories in my house. (Who doesn't?!) One of my favorite Christmas stories is A Christmas Carol, the ultimate classic Christmas story. We thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and enjoyed the added appeal of being able to discuss this book as a family, and use our Christian values to do so. This is a great book for any Christian family who also loves great Christmas classics!
