  • This book brings the past into the present and keeps this well known morality tale alive in the hearts of our youth!
Beautifully illustrated, wonderfully read and true to the original words of Charles Dickens.  This audio book is inspiring.  The words do not appear as you go through the book, your child sees the illustrations and hears the original words being read aloud by a well known narrator.

This is a well known story set in England during the mid 1800's, at the beginning of the Industrial Age.  Meet Ebenezer Scrooge, a wealthy man who hoards his money and does nothing to enhance the lives of others around him.   It tells the the story of the miser and we see how he relates to others around him. During the night of Christmas Eve 4 ghosts come to him, and they change his outlook on life completely, by taking him on a journey of self- discovery!  

The 300 fabulously drawn illustrations add to the overall experience of this book, bringing you so realistically to English past.  You can start and stop reading at any point me your book is bookmarked to return to the same place.  

You can sit with you child and read this over a period of time or all in one go for older children.  A perfect way to illustrate the impact of cause and effect to children and help to guide them towards the path of love and peacefulness.  

This book helps you to internally address your own significance in the world at this at this time of extreme global wealth and extreme global poverty...it has the capacity to change how you behave in the world for the better!  Hauntingly awe-inspiring!

As well as the book you have access to information about Charles Dickens and the background of the original book. Perfect for a child as this makes the story come alive without the fast pace of watching a movie.  Take time to discuss aspects of the story with your child in true English Literature Style!  A great asset for any child studying this book.

A must for any family library!
