Okay, once again I’m torn between two very different books. On one hand, Christmas Day in the Morning made me cry. On the other hand, my son was Llama Llama Holiday Drama come to life one year. Both are meaningful to me in different ways, of course; Christmas Day in the Morning because it’s so very, very beautiful and moving, and Llama Llama is just so fun to read aloud! I’m going to have to go with both today!
