Charles Dickens wrote “A Christmas Carol” in 1843. It’s the most famous Christmas story ever written. It’s also 28,000 words — more than children can stand to hear in a single reading.
When Jesse Kornbluth wanted to read the story to his daughter, he gently trimmed the text. The result is a 13,000-word story that keeps children listening intently and leaning in to see Paige Peterson’s illustrations. Watch the short video below for a preview.
