DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
This lovely holiday anthology features seasonal classics from the turn of the twentieth century. Recounted in verse, the tales feature quaint color illustrations by popular children's artists of the era such as Margaret Evans Price, W. F. Stecher, Raphael Tuck, and others. Heartwarming tales include:
The Night Before Christmas, Clement C. Moore's timeless poem about a visit from St. Nicholas; Father Christmas, a celebration of plum pudding, Jack Frost, snowmen, and other holiday delights;
How Santa Filled the Christmas Stockings, in which a little boy discovers the pitfalls of greed; A Visit to Santa Claus, the story of Teddy's trip in his glider to Santa's workshop; Polar Bear at the Zoo, in which Teddy and his flying machine return to the North Pole with a polar bear; and Christmas ABC, charming verse couplets that spell out Yuletide treats.
This book is gorgeous! The illustrations are so classical and from a time gone by. The stories are truly seasonal classics that not only will children enjoy, but their parents will enjoy it also.
It would be a wonderful coffee table book or gift. Totally heirloom quality.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
