A good, honest to goodness childrens' Christmas story is 'The story of Holly and Ivy' by Rumer Godden. Not pertinent to this season but worth finding if you can. I used to read it to my classes of 7 - 9 year olds in my teaching days and they adored it, as did I!
Goldfish shoals nibbling at my toes. Fun, fun, fun, in the sun, sun, sun!
