A Christmas Journey
This story is about 2 mice who are searching fo food, but end up meeting baby Jesus Christ. It is obviously a religious book about the start of Christmas. It was pretty cute and touching, and good for young children who are learning the meaning of Christmas. It has cute illustrations and a good story line. Good read.

A Message for Santa
Emily loves Christmas, but there is something about it which makes her heart sink, and that something is Santa Claus. Emily wants to block up the chimney to prevent Santa entering the house. But her mum inspires her to find another solution. Eventually, Emily writes Santa a note, telling him to come in through the back door, and go no further than the kitchen table! Afterwards, Emily is so pleased with Santa that she decides that from now on, he may enter the house, and even take a nap on the sofa if he is tired.
Christmas at Thompson Hall: And Other Christmas Stories
Christmas at Thompson Hall brings together the best of the Christmas stories of Anthony Trollope, one of the most successful, prolific, and respected English novelists of the nineteenth century. Characterized by insightful, psychologically rich, and sometimes wryly humorous depictions of the middle class and gentry of Victorian England—and inspired occasionally by missives in the “lost letter” box of the provincial post office that Trollope ran—these tales helped to enshrine the traditions of the decorated Christmas tree, the holiday turkey, and the giving of store-bought gifts. Today, they open a window onto a time when carolers filled the streets and each house’s door displayed a wreath of evergreen boughs, a time at once distant and yet startlingly familiar.
