The best gift by far.....

Good morning to you.  Hope  you have a great day and your Christmas shopping is done or almost done!  Just a few more days until that jolly, round man creeps down the chimney and gives you what you asked for on your Christmas list.  Wishing you all the very best at this time of year. Remember to take time out to read to your kids......

I asked for new gadgets for Christmas.
My list was a hundred lines long.
I figured I might as well try it.
Why not? I mean, what could go wrong?

My parents bought all that I wanted:
An iPod, a big-screen TV,
a camera, a laptop computer,
a Playstation, Xbox, and Wii.

I got a new Kindle, a smart phone,
an RF remote-controlled car,
a robot, a video camera,
a brand new electric guitar.

But those things were just the beginning.
This Christmas, I had such a haul,
it took me all morning, and then some,
to finish unwrapping it all.

A hundred new gadgets to play with.
I couldn't be bothered to wait.
The moment I plugged them all in, though,
it blew every fuse in the state.

If you're spending Christmas in darkness,
and can't play your video game,
I'm sorry for all of the trouble;
it's probably me who's to blame.

I know now I shouldn't be greedy,
so, next year, I think you'll be fine.
Instead of a hundred new gadgets,
I'm asking for just ninety nine.

I have the perfect solution to that problem....he should have gotten a book instead!   No batteries, no electricity, no blackouts to worry about.  There ..... problem solved!!!  Be sure to include some good books in your child's gifts this year. They are the gifts that keep on giving.......

Read on and read always!!!  Opening up a book will open up the world to your child ......
