Some of my very favorite Christmas stories are in this book - The Candle in the Forest and The Gift of the Magi. I also really enjoyed some other stories that I was not familiar with. And then, there are some stories I considered boring. One thing I did like about this book is that almost all of the stories seemed to have a theme running through them - compassion and generosity for those less fortunate. I guess I would give it 3-1/2 stars.
Thanks Michelle for getting me hooked on this series. It has been several years since you gave Kevin this book for me to read. I loved the stories in this volume, and went on the hunt to find as many volumes in this series as I could find. I have given this book to so many people, and look forward to Dec. 1 every year so that I can pull out these books that my family and I love so much.
Great! Joe Wheeler fans will not be disappointed. This time, Mr. Wheeler chose all stories from old issues of "St. Nicholas Magazine". One change (in addition to publisher) from previous editions I've read - he did not include a Christmas story that he wrote. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection.
I agree with Stacey...thanks Michelle for a great family tradition. We pull these out after Thanksgiving along with a pile of Christmas books in a big basket next to the tree. The kids enjoy this tradition as well.
Some excellent stories. Only a couple I don't bother reading over again. Wallace Purling, the tablecloth, the lost umbrella. Classics.
Short stories of Christmas.Some stories were very good and a few ok but I enjoyed the book.I have the second book like it to read.

Joe Wheeler has been labeled many things: as Father Christmas because of his editing/compiling America’s longest-running Christmas of story series — Christmas in My Heart (now in its 18th season); as one of America’s leading story anthologists (56 story collections by twelve publishing houses); as the world’s foremost authority on life and times of the frontier writer Zane Grey (he is co-founder a...more
