A Holiday Read in Our Home
There is really only one question on Christmas Eve - are you on Santa's good or naughty list? Charlie's twin Sam is most likely on Santa's good list while Charlie know she's been especially naughty and won't get any presents. But Santa makes a mistake which Charlie must put right...
Heartwarming, adorable and filled with Richard Curtis' wry humor - reading this book has become a holiday tradition in our home!
Nonna's Recipe for Cultivating Wonder
Ideas for Making It Real
The heart of this story is Charlie's desire to make sure her twin, Sam, gets Santa's gifts even though she will end up without any of her own. A successful adventurer is a realist, as well as one who is willing to act on the needs of others - Charlie is both.
Dreams give us purpose and build resilience, but caring for others fills our adventure with love and community. If it's not already part of your holiday traditions, introduce your kiddos to the idea of serving others - strangers, even - through your local food bank, a giving tree, or any number of other ways to help those in need.
