A Colourful, Bookish Christmas

A Christmas Carol

‘I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year,’ says Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, possibly the most popular of all Christmas stories.

So in the spirit of giving, I have a little festive gift for all readers of my newsletter. Please enjoy complimentary access to my video talk about one of the most compelling tales ever written, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Find out what motivated Charles Dickens to write the story and how it had a profound effect on how we celebrate Christmas today.

And there’s more – I also have a gift for the young people in your life. I’ve prepared a lovely series of 6 printable colouring pages, all with a festive bookish theme and a literary Christmas quote. Print them for your children or granchildren to colour in at home, send them to your child’s school for a class activity, email to friends and relatives, share them on social media, spread them far and wide. Each page has the link to the free Charles Dickens video, so you’ll also be giving a lovely festive gift every time.

I hope you enjoy the video and colouring sheets. Send me a photo of your child’s completed colouring in and you might see it on my Facebook Page.
