Excellent & Magic

Yes the Little Matchstick Girl caught my heartstrings one Christmas morning as I sat surrounded by my loving family in my warm sitting room
opening an abundance of Christmas presents & there on screen was a beautiful small child with no shoes on her feet & no coat to keep warm as she stood in the freezing cold snow waiting for a customer to buy her matches. All presents forgotten as I watched in awe as this little girl lit match after match to light up her dreams to be with her loved ones.
I felt so lucky & so loved. Thousands of children lived like her up to the early 1900's.
A well read story that will warm your heart.

The Little Match Girl

Tasmin Greig did a wonderful job narrating a story that I remember from my childhood.
