Advent Calendar 2017: Day 7

Good morning! It was on this date in 1941 that Pearl Harbor was attacked and on the 8th, FDR gave a famous speech. You can just imagine how jarring this event would have been right before Christmas. At the same time you have to admire the resilience of that generation and honor their sacrifices. 

At the same time it\’s good to escape a little with some beautiful music and a much-loved children\’s books. I can remember the first time I heard The Polar Express read aloud at the library and, boy, was I hooked from that moment on! Allsburg has a wonderful way of transporting his readers. I hope you get the chance to share this gem with children, nieces, nephews, or grandchildren sometime!




Have a wonderful day, everyone!
