I think it’s time for another PETA-inspired blog post. The last one was when the animal rights group said that Britain’s oldest pub, Ye Olde Fighting Cocks in St Albans, should change its name to Ye Olde Clever Cocks, “in recognition of society’s growing compassion for animals and in celebration of intelligent, sensitive chickens”. You […]

It was early morning in early summer, and I was tracing my way through the woods of central North Carolina, steering cautiously around S-curves and braking hard when what looked like a small rise turned into a narrow bridge. I was on my way to meet Tami McGraw, who lives with her husband and the […]

This mouse-wheel looks pretty cute but when your life feels like a mouse-wheel it isn’t cute. Most families I know are exhausted right now at the end of the year. They have been running and rushing all year through a litany of events and pressures. From work, family life, extended family life, school things, extra […]

A few days ago I did my favorite Christmas themed books, but what we really look forward to during the holidays are Christmas movies. From the classics to the cheesy Hallmark movies it’s something that a lot of families look forward to every year and sometimes it’s even a very important tradition. So here are my top 10 Christmas movies (in order).

What happens when the good man you married isn’t all he seems to be? In fact, he’s much, much worse than Katerina Rowe, a church deacon in the historic plague village of Eyam, could ever imagine. And the tension is palpable as Kat slowly realises her life is built on a lie and Leon, the […]

‘Tough Cookie.’ Written and illustrated by Edward Hemingway — Published by Henry Holt, 40 pages, $17.99 — Ages 4-8. (Macmillan Publishers) Certain holiday storybooks come out once a year to savor under the covers. Maybe you also like to give books to an eager reader or reader-to-be. Here are some new titles that celebrate Christmastime, winter, traditions and the season of giving. “Tough Cookie,” written and illustrated by Edward Hemingway (Henry Holt, $17.99, ages 4-8): In this sweet, silly twist on the classic gingerbread man tale, author-illustrator Edward Hemingway (youngest grandson of Ernest Hemingway and Pauline Pfeiffer) takes readers on a journey through Christmastown, where Fox helps the not-very-sweet Sugar Cookie Man find where he belongs. Adults and children will enjoy looking for their favorite smiling, anthropomorphic cupcake and cookie characters, and adults will snicker at their visits to the gated community of “Cookie Cutter” and the Christmastown Spa. The book ends with recipes for versions of the cookie man for eating or decorating. “The Broken Ornament,” written and illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi (Simon & Schuster,  $17.99, ages 4-8): Jack can’t get enough of Christmas and helps his parents trim the tree — until he doesn’t listen to his mother and accidentally breaks an heirloom ornament. He gets help from a fairy named Tinsel, who evokes fantastical holiday scenes in the family’s living room with the wave of a sprig of mistletoe. She shows him the value of family traditions and holidays past and gives Jack the perfect idea to make things right. The illustrations touch on traditions by showing Jack and his parents in matching holiday jammies, while giving him a magical look into the past through the window of a gingerbread house. This story perfectly weaves together the stresses, nostalgia and magic experienced by many families during the holiday season. “Oliver Elephant,” by Lou Peacock, illustrated by Helen Stephens (Nosy Crow,  $16.99, ages 2-5): Noah goes shopping with his mom, baby sister Evie-May and beloved stuffed toy Oliver Elephant, thinking of what Christmas gifts their relatives would like. As they check items off their list, Noah gives Oliver Elephant a sock to try on his trunk and plays peekaboo with Evie-May. But after their long day of shopping, Noah realizes Oliver Elephant is gone. Parents and children will love the bustling, colorful illustrations and rhyming, rhythmic text depicting all-too-familiar holiday errands and the ordeal of looking for a missing, beloved toy. (Spoiler alert: The shopping trip ends on a happy note.) “My Little Gifts: A Book of Sharing,” by Jo Witek, illustrated by Christine Roussey ( Abrams, $16.99, ages 2-4): A little girl opens presents for an unspecified holiday and learns that gifts don’t necessarily come in wrapped boxes. Each page includes a flap or multiple flaps to open, adding to the surprise and lessons. Presents can be shared and taught and handmade. They can even come in the form of kind words, a soft touch or shared knowledge. When the girl learns about bees at school, she comes home to tell her sister, Lili. “Lili asks for more, more, more! I feel like the queen bee! Knowledge is a gift as sweet as honey.” This book, full of playful, doodled illustrations set against stark white backgrounds, teaches valuable lessons for older children and even adults. “Little Fox in the Snow,” by Jonathan London, illustrated by Daniel Miyares ( Candlewick,  $16.99, ages 4-8): A fox ventures from his den on a seemingly peaceful, snowy journey. The suspense rises and falls as he hunts a mouse and then a rabbit before being stalked by a vicious-looking wolverine. He escapes and finally makes his way back to his warm, safe den, where he dreams of another day. This book’s sweeping, snowy watercolor illustrations set the stage for a reading full of suspenseful pauses and descriptive details.

Realization starts to sink in. I hate that phrase, sink into where? I feel like realization floats up to the surface rather than sinks in. The suspicion was there all along, underneath all the waves and froth, but you chose to not see it. Only now, now that it’s making itself visible, making itself impossible […]
