Zeb wanders away from home and can't get back until the snowstorm stops. But the lady who shelters Zeb tells him the Christmas story, starting back before the world was made. Beautiful illustrations.
An old classic of the sick Carol who planned a special Christmas party for some needy children. This is a tear-jerker but a sweet reminder of the joy in serving others.
Turkey for Christmas - Marguerite de Angeli
A favorite author and illustrator tells the story from her childhood. They have just moved to Philadelphia, sister Martha is sick, and there is very little money for Christmas. But there is love, and they find that is all that is needed.
The Herdmann children are going to bash the Christmas pageant - and give the church a perspective on Christmas they will never forget. Fun story.
Treasures of the Snow - Patricia M.St. John
Not really a Christmas book, but the book begins at Christmas and contains an important message of forgiveness. A favorite from my childhood and now of my own children.
