The Lump of Coal

Have you seen this book? It just jumped out at me from the library shelf for some reason. (Maybe I deserve coal...or have be threatening my kids with coal too often?)

So, its about a Lump of Coal who has big dreams.

He wants to be used in a famous work of art or he wants to be part of a barbecue. (I really loved his dreams, so perfect for a lump of coal!)

But things aren't working out. In fact they are going way way wrong, he gets placed in a naughty kid's stocking.

But it turns out this is the best thing that could have happened to the lump of coal...with the help of the boy he is able to achieve all his coaly dreams!

Cute stuff,  with a bit of snarkiness and an underlying message of being grateful for what you've got. We liked it!
