Readalouds for Advent

We have three new books waiting to be read together for Advent. Just a few more days,we can hardly wait! Patricia MacLachlan is one of our favourite authors. Her style is lyrical and reads almost like poetry.We were thrilled to find a new book by her for Advent. Elizabeth Gouge writes beautifully for adults and children. She often intertwines make-believe with the real world, but in a way that amplifies both.Youngest son has been humming the carol the title takes its name from ever since he saw the book. The third and final selection is a new author and so exciting in its own way as we wonder if it too will become a remembered favourite!
