Mondays with Monica- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We finally got our trees today here in Homer, Alaska. Apparently they had been delayed due to some ice storms in Washington, at least that's what we were told. I am so excited to finally get our tree up! My husband put on some Christmas music while he, our little girl, and I decorated and got into the Christmas spirit. Here is our tree this year.

And to get you more into the holiday spirit I thought I would share a wonderful book I was recently given to review, A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book by Charles Dickens, Chuck Fischer and paper engineer Bruce Foster. When I first heard about this book I was excited to receive it because A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite Christmas stories. I had no idea what to expect with a pop-up book version and when I finally received this I was blown away. This is a beautiful book! It is the classic story of Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future filled with gorgeous artwork and amazing pop-up scenes that can be manipulated. Each page of the book unfolds into an intricate piece of artwork with a little pocket that holds the Christmas Carol story as written by Charles Dickens as well as a biography on him. It's a gorgeous book that would make a great gift for someone or keepsake for your family.
I have my copy displayed next to our Christmas tree for all to look at. If you have little ones that are curious you might want to put this book out of hands reach, it is very delicate. I would suggest displaying a different page each night and gathering the family together to read a part of the story aloud. What a great holiday tradition to start! If you would like to get your hands eyes on a copy of this amazing book you can get it online at Amazon or check out your local bookstore to see if they have it in stock. Until next time...
