I just read "Jingle The Christmas Clown" by Tomie dePaola to V. this morning. I hadn't read that since I was younger. So good! I love his work!

I love Tomie dePaola's saint and Bible books. In addition to the Bible Stories, I was able to find The Parables of Jesus and The Miracles of Jesus for 75 cents each online. I started putting together a little synaxarion spreadsheet so that we can incorporate the books with saints, feasts, and Scripture readings into Teddy's (and his parents') life. Thank you for being part of that inspiration!
