"A Christmas carol" by Charles Dickens

Our reading of December for the year 6 bookworms will be "A Christmas carol".
A Christmas carol is a novella written by Charles Dickens and first published in London in 1843. The story is about Ebenezer Scrooge, an old unfriendly mean  man who does not like Christmas at all. It takes place on the 24th of December, Christmas Eve, when everybody is busy getting ready for the Christmas celebrations, except Mr. Scrooge. That night, he will be visited by 3 different spirits: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Future. They will take him to different places to teach him a lesson. 
Will Mr. Scrooge feel the spirit of Christmas? Will he see the generosity and love of human beings? Will he change after all? 
Here you have a link to a page with the audios of the story and some online activities.
