Albeit the title begins with the words "Christmas in," this review isn't about the 1945 classic Christmas movie called "Christmas in Connecticut," but it's about a choice Christmas book, surely bound for Christmas classic status, entitled, "Christmas in Ukraine." As you lift the cover, you'll span time zones and cultures and arrive in a land which has over the decades delighted audiences worldwide with its symphonic sensuous sounds of Shchedryk (by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych), commonly known worldwide as the Carol of the Bells. It's a land resounding with folklore and folktales, mythology and magic; it's a land where Christmas holydays/holidays are observed and celebrated with not only special religious rituals, but also with the merriment and festivities and good cheer that only St. Nicholas can bestow.

Christmas in Ukraine is part of the Christmas Around the World series from World Book, Inc. Enticing in appearance, I first picked up this volume to browse before perusal. Some of my initial impressions and observations were: a quality product; large, beautiful Ukrainian embroidery designs embellish each chapter; truthful text; Ukrainian spellings of locales and artifacts are used throughout (although Kiev [Russian] instead of Kyiv [Ukrainian] is used); accurate transliterations; numerous pertinent photos that enhance the educational, informative text throughout; and, an overall professional production, which will grace shelves wherever Christmas in Ukraine is to be found. Some of the contributors to this book are personally known to me, and I've visited the Ukrainian National Museum in Chicago more than once to hear lectures and to view exhibits--so, to me, that this is a professional presentation is without a doubt.

Part of a series developed by World Book Inc. several decades ago for young people, these 80-page books have evolved into a rich storehouse of information for anyone of any age who enjoys learning the Christmas history, stories, regional Christmas songs, Christmas crafts, and holiday recipes of many nations.

One of the highlights of "Christmas in Ukraine" is the description of the special feast days leading up to Christmas. They include: The Feast of the Presentation on December 4, Saint Catherine's Day on December 7, The Day of the Apostle Andrew on December 13, Saint Barbara's Day on December 17, and Saint Nicholas Day on December 19.

The book is richly illustrated with full-color photos. Three Ukrainian carols have the original language, English translation, and treble notes - "Eternal God," "All the Universe Rejoices," and "Heaven and Earth."

Recipes in the book include Beet Soup with Mushroom Dumplings, Dried Fruit Compote, Honey Cake, and Christmas Honey Balls. Included with the book are six recipe cards for additional Christmas treats and an Advent calendar.

Collect the whole series for your home library, re-read them every December, and share them with friends and family.
