Video of me reading "The Gingerbread Baby"

Merry Christmas! Take a break, gather the children around, and let me read to you Jan Brett's book The Gingerbread Baby.

A friend emailed me that Sarah looks "mildly tortured." It had been a long day but she wanted to be in the video and thought I wanted her to smile the whole time. On previous attempts the book had too much of a glare, according to my husband. Okay, we're amateurs. Here is a professionally produced music/video guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit: Andrea Bocelli and Mary J. Bling sing "What Child is This?"

This is an amazing vocal of "O Holy Night" in 4 octaves:

  1. My kids thoroughly enjoyed your story ~ we listened to it at bed time =-) Thanks for linking up to TGIF,
    Beth =-)

  2. My friend emailed me that Sarah looks "mildly tortured." Sarah thought she was supposed to smile the whole time. My husband didn't like the glare on the book the previous times we tried it - so we left it at that. Kinda funny but our first video attempt. So glad you liked it and thanks for stopping by. I like your site too. Love the blog hopping.

  3. I'll try this after nap when it's wake up time before snack.
