Nov. 29, 2010 - PRLog -- Last holiday season KBN proudly introduced the original Dickens classic A Christmas Carol on the KBN website. Because everyone loves this very special story of the winter season this year KBN is actually introducing it again – but for the first time in the free book network's exciting live, on-screen bookcasting™ format.
   "Now KBN site visitors can actually project the enduring tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, Marley's Ghost and Tiny Tim," explained KBN CEO Uncle Henry, "in an authentic page-turning format direct from their computer monitor right up onto any home or classroom wall."
   A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens was first published in a British newspaper, in a serialized format, in 1843. Now republished on the KBN website in a free on-paper format –  now "serialized"  in five compact printable volumes, – this special edition of of the story was carefully prepared by scholars at the University of Virginia Library and has been made available to KBN with their kind permission.
  Anyone not familiar with A Christmas Carol may wonder if a work with such a religious-oriented title is appropriate for the public classroom. The simple answer is yes, and with its vivid dialog it's a wonderful work to bring to young readers and share in the form of "readers theater."
   "It might come as something of a surprise," explained KBN's reading advocate CEO, "but the work is completely focused on the personal moral behaviors of the characters during a traditional holiday season of goodwill, and except for the title does not actually mention anything about religion except, perhaps, the universal principle of charity and caring shared by all of humanity.
   "Ethics and appropriate social behaviors are an integral part of American educational tradition." In the coming year KBN hopes to introduce additional classic books with stories reflecting many different spiritual traditions and cultures.
