Utterly charming- and in a way that will endear itself to both the small fry who are beginning to have associations with Christmas, and the grown-ups who want those traditions to be carried on. There are the pleasant material things of gifts and a tree, of making cookies and sharing in a creche; there are the memories enjoyed as families gather. And throughout- without preaching- there is the spirit of Christmas as a ""time of giving"". Companion volume to A Friend is Someone Who Loves You, etc. Line and wash, illustrations to accompany every page of text. A stocking book- that will last the year.
