This beautifully illustrated and comprehensive collection offers perennial favorites, such as Clement Clarke Moore's A Visit from Saint Nicholas, and less well-known stories and poems by both classic and contemporary authors -- Louisa May Alcott, Christina Rossetti, and Robert San Souci, to name a few. Arranged into four sections that focus on different aspects of the holiday -- from Santa to the Nativity -- this book has something to please many holiday tastes, including a few carols and crafts, and a special section on how Christmas is celebrated around the world. A perfect gift with over two hundred illustrations, including a gatefold of the Nativity scene, this gorgeous volume is destined to become a family favorite.
