I like Bob Cratchit because he is a kind and loving family man. He is an accountant who works for Scrooge. Although he is always mistreated by Scrooge, he bears his employer no ill will because he understand that Scrooge' s life is lonely. Cratchit' s son, Tiny Tim, is very ill. However, Cratchit doesn' t forsake him, but take more care of him instead. He is really a good father.

I like this book because it is a heart warming story about a mean, old, greedy man that through the help of some interesting spirits finds the meaning of Christmas. This book is also a good way to share the magical meanings of Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is a part that scared me a little bit, but the end is so cheerful that I reckon it is suitable for everyone.
