Editor reviews

Narrator Daniel Thomas May gives an animated performance of this collection of Christmas stories beloved by children. Giving each tale its own style of narration, May's lively voice rises and falls with drama and easily holds the listener's attention.

Listeners will find themselves moved by the sentimentality brimming in quite a few of the stories, from the fir tree's sad fate in The Fir-Tree to the little star's search for someone with whom to share his light in The Christmas Star. Other stories are filled with humor, and a few have lessons on Christian morality, but all are infused with the Christmas spirit.

Summary

The Children's Book of Christmas Stories is a wonderful assortment of 35 Christmas-themed tales chosen by editor Asa Dickinson. Authors include Charles Dickens ("Christmas at Fezziwig's Warehouse"), Hans Christian Andersen ("The Fir-Tree"), Susan Coolidge ("Toinette and the Elves"), and Elizabeth Harrison ("A Story of the Christ-Child"). Whether it is for children, or for family gatherings, everyone is sure to be captivated and enthralled!
