This is a wonderful book that your children will enjoy for a long time. My daughters are still quite young so I am sure this book will be read many times from now on.
Beautifully illustrated as well by fantastic illustrators like Quentin Blake, Emma Chichester Clark, Michael Foreman and Sophie Allsopp. The illustrations are gentle and beautiful and the stories themselves so beautifully written. They capture the essence of Christmas and the reader basks in an aura of love and care.
