What I learned from reading The Birds’ Christmas Carol by Kate Douglass Wiggin

The Birds’ Christmas Carol
By Kate Douglass Wiggin

The penultimate book on the Christmas Collection I am reading is The Birds’ Christmas Carol by Kate Douglass, and it was really nice to read  another Christmas Story after reading the Wind in the Willows which I think it has nothing to with Christmas. 

This story is a very short one, and it is a very cute one that I really enjoyed reading, because it was simple,  the vocabulary was easy, the narrative was simple and easy to follow, so this was a very nice book to read, although I gotta say that I didn’t love it, but it was entertaining to read. 

But what did I learn from it? 

Well, I learned that sometimes, some people are just here for a purpose, and even tho not all of us might have a purpose, some people do and it is not until they accomplish that purpose that they can move on to the afterlife. 

Since this book left me reflecting on that, because it tells the story of a little girl called Carol Bird, who was born on a Christmas Day, and whose purpose was to bring her wealthy family with their poor neighbors together . 

So this book brings a beautiful message and although it is a little sad, it was fun to read, I would have liked it to be longer and probably have an epilogue or something that could tell more of what happened after, but it was nice anyways because as I already said the message it brings is that everyone has a purpose in this life that has to complete before we die.

What I learned from reading Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.

Wind in the Willows
By Kenneth Grahame

Next on the Christmas Compilation Stories I am reading I found another not Christmas related book, and it was Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. 

And I am going to be honest about this book… I found it to be the most illogical, irrational, boring and nonsensical book I’ve ever read, I only liked the first two chapters of it, afterwards it became a pain to keep reading, I would fall sleep, switch books, only read one page a day and get bored, etc, etc, etc. 

But no matter how boring the book was, I kept on reading and I finished, because I have this OCD of finishing every book that I start reading, so read the whole book despite boring me to almost death. 

But what did I learn from Wind in the Willows? 

Well, despite everything, I think that what I learn from it was that there’s a whole new world outside of our own little world, because in a way this book reflects about stepping out of our comfort zone and the wonders we could find when we just step out of it. 

Because the whole book is about a Mole who came out of his habitat to live with a Water Rat by a river, and from there they meet other animals and go into adventures with them. But then again, the book is very confusing as sometimes they portrait the animals talking with humans and interacting or acting like them too without any logical thought. 

But I am really glad I could made the best out of it and took a lesson out of it, because otherwise it would have been a complete waste of my time.
