The Forgotten Carols

What's not to love about a good story by Michael McLean? I hadn't read this book in quite a while so I picked it up one night for a quick read. It's very easy to fall in love with the characters and the storyline. Since we play the music from this book often during the month of December it's hard not to read this and hear the songs in my head throughout the whole thing.
Love the music, and love the book. It's a great Christmas read!

I picked this book up for a quick read at the library during December and I was pretty happy with the outcome. The story is based on a song, The Christmas Shoes, which I love to hear each Christmas season. It was a short easy to read story which helped me remember a few things that are truly important at Christmas.
While it wasn't my favorite Christmas book, I find it hard not to like any Christmas story. Totally worth an afternoon read.
