Description

Stories about robins, trees, bells, cakes, puddings, presents, snowmen, goblins, carol-singers, the Wise Men, Father Christmas (and his dog) -- they're all here. This beautifully illustrated treasury of nineteen stories -- fifteen of which are totally new and appear here for the first time -- are written by such well-known children's authors as Geraldine McCaughrean, Rachel Anderson, and Joel Chandler Harris, among others. Their stories span many times and many places but all serve to tell the Christmas story and evoke the magic and joy of the holdiay's celebrations, both religious and secular. A storybook perfect for both read-aloud or for private reading, children will find surprises and delights in the colorful illustrations and the simple and direct text. This should keep young bookworms happy throughout the holiday season and beyond.show more
