Book of the Week: 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'

Another Christmas book this week. This one always gets read a lot this time of year in our house. It has good memories attached to it for me, because it was a tradition in my family growing up to always read it together on Christmas Eve. It's obviously not a Christian book, but I do like the anti-materialism message that comes with it (although I always wonder why Dr Seuss didn't allow the Grinch to dump all those presents over the edge!). It's also well-written, like all Dr Seuss books, which makes it a pleasure to read.

If you're not familiar with it - here's a version I found with Walter Matthau narrating.
