A favorite of my childhood Christmases. We had a big box of Christmas books and movies that came down from the attic every year, and this was a favorite. My mom read some of the stories to me when I was younger, then as I started reading myself I kept on chugging through the book. Of course it's also perfectly illustrated by Marc Brown. I really hope my mom kept this around, because I want to revisit it again come December!
Any book that includes Emmet Otters Jugband Christmas deserves 5 stars in my book! But it also included several other favorites (Grimm's The Elves and the Shoemaker, Uncle Wigglys Christmas, and Cobweb Christmas by Shirley Climo) and some new favorites (The Christmas Thief by Jay Williams, Jesus Ahatonhia- a Huron story, and the Christmas Whale by Roger Duvoisin). The poems in amongst the stories were very enjoyable as well. Overall a great read aloud book for bedtime before Christmas.
Do you give books for Christmas? I've always thought it ideal for each child in our family to receive: *a book *something new to wear *something to play with.
It is true that books don't always seem exciting at the moment, but it is something they can savor much longer than cheap toys that are quickly broken or discarded.
