His first Christmas Carol performance lasted around three hours and was held at City Hall, Birmingham, to a crowd of 2, Altering expression, accent and gesture, Dickens played the characters so well that he was said to possess them. Charles Dickens's Nicholas Nickleby was first published in monthly parts between March and September Nicholas's adventures take him to the nightmarish school Dotheboys Hall, home of the brutal schoolmaster Wackford Squeers — one of Dickens's greatest grotesques.
Oliver Twist is Charles Dickens's second novel, and is about an orphan boy whose good heart helps him escape the terrible underworld of crime and poverty in 19th-century London.
A Christmas Carol recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man. Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol during a period when the British were exploring and re-evaluating past Christmas traditions, including carols and newer customs such as Christmas trees.
He was influenced by the experiences of his own youth and by the Christmas stories of other authors including Washington Irving and Douglas Jerrold. Dickens had written three Christmas stories prior to the novella, and was inspired following a visit to the Field Lane Ragged School, one of several establishments for London's street children.
I highly recommend this book to children of all ages. Anonymous More than 1 year ago I am a middle school special education teacher and I bought this for my class.
This was great. I bought the nook kids version and then even the kids who couldn't read all the words could listen to it and follow along. They really enjoyed it and they could discuss the key points with the students who are not in special ed. They were proud of themselves. It was a wonderful experience! This book shows the importance of sharing and giving. This book also can show that people can change throughout their life.berafopboeda.tk

All Mr. Scrooge needed was someone to show him some love and kindness. I think that we get so busy in our lives that we forget that people need those two things the most in their lives. I would use this book during the month of December.

Children need stories related to events in their lives. The illustrations in A Christmas Carol are amazing. I can remember my neighbor growing up. He was like Mr. He never decorated or celebrated Christmas. My entire street was lit up with lights and decorations.
Then, you get to the end of my street and there was darkness. I always hated looking that way as a kid because the thought of my neighbor being like he was saddened me. AnneDenney on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago Lovely retelling, great illustration, just scary enough to be impressive and yet not too frightening. Wonderfully abridged. I watch the movies every year.
I read the novel every year. And when I find books, like this, that are based on the story, I pick it up. I found the ebook of this story last year around this time and fell in love with the cover, wanting to see how beautiful the story was depicted by the illustrator. If you know the story as well as I do, it's a little awkward reading a shortened version of the whole story because you're expecting words, lines, etc to be there and they're not. The illustrations are amazing, though - seeing the depictions in this book, while reading along to the story, was awesome - so awesome I read it twice before I even shared it with the kidd-os.
