Home For Christmas Stories For Young and Old

For readers who are tired of Christmas commercialism, or who feel that Santa Claus and reindeer don t tell the whole story, these classic gems provide a winning alternative. Selected for their insightfulness, spiritual value, and literary quality (nothing moralistic here) they project the spirit of the season in a fresh, compelling manner that will resonate with readers of all ages from children too young to read to themselves, to parents and grandparents who enjoy reading stories aloud.

Home for Christmas includes time-tested favorites by some of the world s most beloved children s authors Pearl Buck, Selma Lagerlof, Henry van Dyke, Madeleine L Engle, Elizabeth Goudge, Rebecca Caudill, and Ruth Sawyer as well as little-known European stories appearing in English for the first time."

Cafe Lily's Review:

If you have a book lover on your Christmas list, this would make a wonderful gift!  It's perfect for reading aloud, and has a wide range of stories with a variety of messages.  Some are more sentimental than others but all are interesting and wholesome. This collection of Christmas stories has a little something for everyone. Some I enjoyed more than others, but there are plenty to choose from in this collection.
