Did you give or receive any books this year? I’d love to hear about them.

I still remember the Christmas my sister and I received the Little House series from a favorite aunt. This was followed by many amazing books from her over the years.

Dorothea Steinthal and her siblings also had a beloved book-gifting aunt. Her name was Charlotte Mason, but the Steinthal children knew her as Aunt Mai. Dorothea tells us, “Every Christmas brought a batch of books with a personal inscription for each of us. A bright-colored, illustrated, ‘Chaucer for Children’ and another, ‘Queen Victoria’s Dolls’ I remember specially.”
