The Light of the World
by Katherine Paterson
I honestly thought Mr. A wouldn’t sit through the whole thing. Several times in December I just read the first part about His birth… but I decided Christmas isn’t the only time I should read about Jesus’ birth! Plus, how will I know if he’ll sit and listen if I don’t try.
He did sit, right on the bed next to me, for all but the last few pages. I know he’s listening. But there is a mirror by his bed and he likes to make faces in it. So that’s what he did while I read the end.
