December 2010 Chapter Book Read Aloud Challenge

I've challenged myself to read at least one chapter book a month to my three children. If you would like to join this challenge, visit this post.
Last month we read A Lion to Guard Us. The story was based on some true historical events in the early 1600's. There's a small section in the back with true historical facts. The children in the story had to overcome some hardships, deal with death, run into people who were not nice, and make some hard decisions. We figured out unknown vocabulary words and made pictures in our heads. This book allowed for some good discussions. How would that make you feel? What would you have done? Can you believe someone would act like that?

This month we will read The Best Christmas Ever by Silvia Green.

Please share about a book you read last month and/or a book you plan to read this month.
