Can’t you just picture the cozy scene? The boys cuddled under their throws either laughing at Christmas antics or in awe over the story of Jesus’ birth; and Jen, sharing those moments night after night, year after year with her (now 10 and 13 yr old) boys.
What a lovely and enduring tradition.

Kai Strand is the author of The Weaver, a tween chapbook that offers a little magic and a lot of storytelling. Though it isn’t a Christmas title, it would make a fine Christmas present for any 9 – 12 year old.
