A Treasury of Christmas Stories and Songs : Review

OK, so I know Christmas is long gone, but we received a lovely book for the Parragon Book Buddies Scheme just after Christmas and we love it and want to share. So, here's one for next year - probably even available in the sales somewhere if you are someone who likes to make the most of the January price drops and get prepared for next year.

A Treasury of Christmas Stories and Songs - Book Cover



A Treasury of Christmas Stories and Songs (Treasuries) is a large hard cover book which includes traditional tales, classic rhymes, cherished songs and carols. Some of the stories I am very familiar with, others were new to me, A Letter to Santa being one of those.


A Treasury of Christmas Stories and Songs - Index


The stories have been beautifully illustrated by seven different illustrators, and all are beautiful. t is quite nice to have a mix of illustrators as it does help to give each story its own individual identity (and makes it easier to stop reading at the end of one, rather than having to continue all night!) 



BB loves this book. He has really started to understand what Christmas is all about this year, so I am sure we will be reading this from November onwards. Meanwhile I will keep it safe
