New Release! Sue Badeau "Christmases Past - Volume 5 - The Christmas Primer"

“Did you and Poppa take a lunch pail when you went to school in Virginia?” Six-year-old Titus King innocently asks his parents as he gets ready for his first day of school. When he learns that his parents, former slaves, were not allowed to learn to read he is shocked and saddened. As Christmas in Civil-War-era Vermont rolls around, Titus worries he will not have anything to give his parents, until an experience at school gives him an idea. He can’t wait to see Poppa’s face!

What are readers saying about Sue's story:"The Christmas Primer is a must read! The story took me on a wonderful journey back to 1864 Vermont ... a place where escaped slaves were given the opportunity to build a life in freedom. Sue's vivid descriptions and attention to historical details drew me into that world. I became part of the King family, listing to Poppa's stories, enjoying Momma's biscuits and jam and walking with young Titus and his friends to and from school.

When reading a short story, I usually take a break half-way through, but I couldn't with this one....I didn't want to say good-bye! Kudos Sue!"
