and a blessed
We thank you all for visiting us, for your wonderful comments on the books we post and hope you've found something during the year that will help your youngsters become better readers. It is our hope, that by providing simple activities to go along with picture books, or thought provoking questions for older readers, that youngsters will find a greater enjoyment in reading.
If you haven't already, we hope you'll find us over at facebook and like our page where we not only share post from this site, but also news tidbits, links to free books for all ages and any other fun things we find while browsing around.
We hope everyone will enjoy the holidays. Bake some cookies with your children. Read the old tried and true books such as "Twas the Night Before Christmas", "Frosty The Snowman" or so many others. And don't forget to share the greatest story, and the very reason we celebrate this season.
Be sure to tell them the story about a great ruler, who left his throne and his beautiful home to come and live with the people of his land. He loved them very much and was tired of being separated from them. He came, as a baby. He came in the most lowly place possible so that he'd understand our low places. He came helpless as we often feel helpless when our world is in chaos. He came to walk the same life we have to walk. He brought nothing from his beautiful land with him. No riches. No groomsman. No finery.
Yet, he did bring his love for his people. He spent his life teaching them and loving them and living amongst him. He gave up everything for them. Everything.
And I won't tell you the rest of the story here. Go read it for yourself. Start with Luke 2 and keep going.
If you wish.
Merry Christmas from The Queen, Wiz. Lexiconi, the dragons and knights and all who dwell amongst the shelves of the Castle Library.
