The Christmas Dolls

by Carol Beach York

Miss Plum and Miss Lavender are wrapping dolls donated to the orphanage for the little girls who live there. They set two aside as extras because one is a rag doll with no shoes and the other is bald, has a backward head, is losing stuffing and also has no shoes. When it looks as if the dolls, Lily and Florabelle will spend Christmas in the trash and never be loved again, seven-year-old Tatty, who can talk to dolls takes them out by herself on Christmas Eve to get them fixed. Find out about Christmas at the orphanage and what happens to Tatty and her dolls who get lost in the snow in this story for children who love dolls and Christmas.

Washington Irving's Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman

by Carol Beach York

On the quiet banks of the Hudson River in New York, Washington Irving first wrote the tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman. This tale of ghosts and terror takes place in Sleepy Hollow--a village as quiet as its name. Although the hero, Ichabod, was not strong or brave, like so many other American folk heroes, his story has been handed down to us over the years. Just as the stories told by the villagers of Sleepy Hollow made life just a bit more exciting, Ichabod's tale shows how the power of imagination and story-telling can spice up our own everyday lives.
