31 December Days, 31 Books. Today, let’s take a journey with Ox-Cart Man…

Reading books around the holidays is always a special way to settle in, settle down, settle up the day. Each of 31 Days in December, I will be recommending a picture book to read to/with your kids of any age. Remember that the older kids love to settle in with you, with a book, too. It recreates memories and creates new memories.

Each book I recommend is one I’ve read over and over and over again with my kids and/or now with my grandkids. I guarantee the magical.

Ox-Cart Man is a lyrical journey of one New England farm family’s year, season by season. Both simply and exquisitely, the text and illustrations evoke the core of family and historical America.

A wonderful December stop with your kids is your local library or bookstore… maybe just to journey with Ox-Cart Man.

Reading aloud to your kids & grandkids is a wonderful and proven way to improve vocabulary and increase reading comprehension and thinking skills by connecting directly with a book… its words, its story, its message, its magic. The more books in early childhood, the greater the chances of reading success. Enjoy!
