One read aloud suggestion is The Christmas Ornaments written by Pamela Edge. The Christmas Ornaments is a story about discarded Christmas tree ornaments. The ornaments discover that they’re being replaced by shiny new ornaments and they find themselves in a bargain bin at the Humane Society. They hold on to fading hope that they will once again decorate a Christmas tree. What follows is a charming tale that reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas.
