I have always read to my children, I am just waiting to read them this specific book because the level of concentration it requires to sit through has been a bit beyond them so far. I pick different books to suit them at different ages/stages of maturity.
This year I've made a list of Christmassy books to read. I haven't read any of them before, so can't yet vouch for how good they are, but I figure a mix will get me in the festive spirit. They are:
Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
Matchless by Gregory Maguire
Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris
The Stupidest Angel: a Heart-warming Tale of Christmas Terror by Christopher Moore.
