Best viewed on a color eBook reader.About the eBookInitially, I published the print version of “The Story of the Christmas Village” in 2006, as a Christmas gift for my mother. I gave copies of the book to family and friends. While it was featured on my website, I never spent time marketing the book, assuming only my close family and friends would be interested.In November of 2011, my sister, an elementary school teacher, asked me if I would make an eBook version, which she could download on her new iPad. I told her I had considered converting it to an eBook, yet didn’t feel anyone would be interested. She immediately disagreed with me, explaining that each year she reads “The Story of the Christmas Village” to her classroom, and it has become a favorite with her students. The students are excited to make their own card village after reading the book.If you download the eBook, you may want to pick up a pack of blank 3x5 cards, sticky tape, colored markers and a scissors, before sharing the story with a youngster. Chances are, he or she will be ready for those basic craft supplies after finishing the story.
