For today’s new content, I go into my own archives and share a personal story, “Green Angels,” copyright 2000.
Here’s a photo of the Christmas book collection, which is squeezed in next to a stereo speaker to prove this is my actual house and I have not staged the photo.
The books mentioned on this episode are:
The Littlest Angel by Charles Tazewell, copyright 1946. There have been many editions of this book, but our copy is illustrated by Sergio Leone and published by Watertower Books.
A Cup of Christmas Tea by Tom Hegg, illustrated by Warren Hanson. Copyright 1982, published by Waldman House Press.
Santa’s Crash-Bang Christmas by Steven Kroll, illustrated by Tomie DePaola. Copyright 1977, published by Xerox Education Publications.
Here’s the two angels mentioned in “Green Angels,” hanging from the wood-paneled walls of my office:
And here’s the whole angel collection, 2016 edition, next to the stereo that connects to the speaker pictured above.
