Day 13 of Advent: Reading to a Child or an Elder this Advent

One of my favorite activities to do each Advent is to read a story of Christmas to a child or an elder.  It is virtually free, as you can check a book out of the library.  Reading aloud will bring joy–I promise to both you and the listener.  Here is a short list of options that you could read!

1.  The Little Match Girl, by Hans Christian Andersen

2.  Olive, the Other Reindeer, by J. Otto Seibold

3.  Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, by Susan Wojciechowski

4.  Dream Snow, by Eric Carle

5.  The Legend of the Poinsettia, by Tomie dePaola

6.  The Crippled Lamb, by Max Lucado

7.  The Berenstain Bears and the Joy of Giving, by Jan and Mike Berenstain

8.  Charlie and the Christmas Kitty, by Ree Drummond

9.  A Wish to be a Christmas Tree, by Colleen Monroe

10.  Welcome Comfort, by Patricia Polacco

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
