See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
The Christmas Tree by Julie Salamom was our last book of 2011. I really no not have any question about except did you enjoy it and would you be willing to read anything else by her. Also did you know there was a movie dircortor by Sally Fields base on the book.
Yes I enjoy the book very much and yes I might read something else by her. No I was not awe of the movie.
