One of my favorites is the book by James Herriot, "The Christmas Day Kitten". I read this to my kids every Christmas for years. They are all grown now and I miss a lot of the childhood traditions we had. This is a true story that is very touching.
The illustrations are just beautiful to me. I'm not going to give the story away, you need to read it yourself.:)
Aren't the bassett hounds just adorable?
Sorry about the date being in the pictures. I don't how it got there! I really do need to read my manual on my camera.
