How the Grinch Stole Christmas Book and DVD

"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store.
"Maybe Christmas . . . perhaps . . . means a little bit more!"

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss is one of my all time favorite Christmas children's books!!!

Our family reads the Grinch so often during December that we can all quote almost the entire book.

We love the book so much we even carried it on the airplane to read as we flew to Texas earlier this month. I'm not sure our fellow passengers appreciated our read aloud but we certainly had fun.

Why do we enjoy How the Grinch Stole Christmas? Well, it's fun to read the book with emphasis and change our voices. It's also a wonderful story of redemption. The Grinch's heart grows "3 sizes" as he learns Christmas isn't about all the trimmings and packages.

We also enjoy watching the movie. NOT the Jim Carrey version. {shudder.shudder.} We like the original animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas movie. I think the Carrey version adds grown-up and potty humor that doesn't have a place in this wonderful story.

If How the Grinch Stole Christmas! book and DVD aren't in your Christmas collection I highly recommend you add them today!

A favorite here, too; however, my littlest M doesn't really like it...yet! She is sensitive and finds the Grinch scary for now...

My littlest likes the book. He says the movie scares him but doesn't mind watching if he's sitting on mom or dad's lap. :)

We read this today. And we're watching it tonight. I think.
