Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a choice collection of favorite stories and poems filled with the Christmas spirit, perfect for children, their families, and friends to enjoy together at holiday time. It includes Charles Dickens's own abridgment of A Christmas Carol, O. Henry's poignant story "The Gift of the Magi," and Clement Clarke Moore's beloved poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas."

The story of the first Christmas as told in the gospel of St. Luke (King James version) is here, too, along with Albert Bigelow Paine's delightful animal story "Christmas the the Hollow Tree Inn," and the touching editorial reply in the New York Sun to 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon's question, "Is there a Santa Claus?" For good measure, there are lyrics to traditional songs and carols, among them "Away in a Manger," "The Twelve Days of Christmas," "Jingle Bells," and three more. Ideal as a stocking stuffer, this volume is a perfect sampler of Christmas reading for children.

Original Dover (1995) selection of texts reprinted from standard editions.
