December 10th

Now that you've had a chance to read my old favorite Christmas stories, I thought I'd share my other favorite books for Christmas. I don't think I really have any order to these, I just really enjoy the stories.

Sleigh Bells for Windy Foot
Frances Frost
(This is a delightful story about the Clark family and some special friends. If you've ever read any of the other Windy Foot books you'll enjoy this one.)

The Candle in the Window
Margaret Hill McCarter
(This is an old reprint published by Lamplighter. I liked this simple story.)

The Lion in the Box
Marguerite De Angeli
(Oh the charm of this story! I'll show you in another post how to make stars like they did.)

Christmas Stories from Grandma's Attic
Arleta Richardson
(If you like the Grandma's Attic books, then you are sure to like this one. It's all the Christmas stories and some you won't find in the other books, all combined to make one book of fun Christmas stories.)

The Christmas Stove (a story of Switzerland)
The Christmas Donkey (a story of France)
Arne and the Christmas Star (a story of Norway)
The Top o' Christmas Morning (a story of Ireland)
Erik's Christmas Camera (a story of Sweden)
Kaatje and the Christmas Compass (a story of Holland)
Alta Halverson Seymour
(If you enjoy reading about Christmas time in other countries, than you should read these lovely books by Alta Seymour. They are told so well and quite enjoyable!)

I hope you get a chance this December to curl up with a good Christmas story and be transported to another time and place for a few hours, back to when life was simpler. Happy reading!
