What a beautiful childhood Christmas story. I love how Deirdre Tolhurst shared her Christmas memories as displayed in "A Christmas I Remember." I adore the poetic style used as Deirdre enlightened her readers through this sweet little book.

As I read this story, I reminisced back to my past Christmases with my siblings as we waited for Santa Claus. What a beautiful, magical way to share a personal childhood Christmas story. I can also tell that Deirdre holds a very special place in her heart for

This reminds me of the books I used to read a a child--so comforting and traditional. Both the illustrations and the verse evoke nostalgic memories of Christmases past complete with snow falling, burning fires, and family. A wonderful book for families to read together!

Deirdre Tolhurst

It's Christmas Eve and a blizzard brings heavy, blinding deep snow to Deirdre's town. It is beautiful to gaze upon, yet the little girl wonders if Santa can make it through the storm.

Deirdre Tolhurst shares her own remembrance of such a Christmas storm and the miracle that transpires that Holiest of night
