We love Christmas movies in my house. Well, let me rephrase that. Emma and I love Christmas movies, and my guys humor us. Last week, I shared with you our love of all things Nutcracker – the ballet, the movies, the picture books. It doesn’t matter. We love it!
We also love A Christmas Carol. We watch several different movie versions throughout the holiday season. However, I have to admit that I have never read the book. I plan to change that this year. I intend for it to be our Christmas read-aloud this year. Actually, we’ll listen to the audiobook version on our way to and from Nutcracker rehearsals for the next few weeks. There are so many versions of A Christmas Carol that it should be fairly easy to find one to meet your reader’s needs should you decide to read it, as well.
Once we’ve listened to the book in its entirety, we’ll watch the Jim Carey version of the movie. From there, we’ll compare and contrast the book and the movie. I’m hoping to have some lively conversations about the book as we listen to it. In addition, I’ll have Emma complete several of the pages from this printable pack that I created. There are pages for all ages, and I’ll have her work through the older pages throughout the month.
