Lucy's Christmas
1.  Lucy's Christmas by Donald Hall
The list author says:
  "Lucy Wells likes planning ahead. In her quaint New England town the leaves have just begun to change, but Lucy is already thinking of Christmas. Set at the turn of the twentieth century, richly illustrated with colored engravings by Michael McCurdy, the masterful Hall has painted a scene of a classic New England Christmas, based on the childhood stories of his own mother."

The Twelve Days of Christmas
2.  The Twelve Days of Christmas by Ilse Plume
The list author says:
  "Drawing inspiration from centuries-old illuminated manuscripts, Caldecott honor-medalist Ilse Plume creates an Italian Renaissance setting for the lyrics of The Twelve Days of Christmas. Readers will gladly lose themselves in this quietly brilliant gem of bookmaking, a gift book that celebrates the joys of gift-giving. Includes sheet music and lyrics for the home musician."

When the Frost Is on the Punkin
3.  When the Frost Is on the Punkin by James Whitcomb Riley
The list author says:
  "Riley's poem brings to life the rustle and russet of the harvest season, its richness and its promise. Lang has beautifully interpreted the lively text in her own distinctive style of rich, smooth colors that delight the eye. A classic read-aloud that parents and grandparents will remember fondly, and that any young child will enjoy."

Little Red Riding Hood
4.  Little Red Riding Hood by Andrea Wisnewski
The list author says:
  "Andrea Wisnewski makes the story of Little Red Riding Hood fresh and new in this ingeniously designed retelling sure to become America’s favorite. The images, full of lovingly rendered period detail, are done in a medium Wisnewski has made her own: hand-painted papercut prints. With brush and scissors, she captures the class Grimm tale with the snap, the silence, and the mystery of winter."

A Child's Christmas in Wales (Godine Storyteller)
5.  A Child's Christmas in Wales (Godine Storyteller) by Dylan Thomas
The list author says:
  "This is one of Ardizzone's last books, and in our mind one of his best; a gentle and beguiling memoir of a Christmas spent in Cardiff when Thomas was a child. Ardizzone's quick, sure brushwork is not only the perfect complement to a timeless classic but a wonderful evocation of a gentle and seemingly endless Christmas in a faraway land made charming and endearing through language."

Charmingly illustrated with ink drawings by Margot Tomes, it is a perfect Christmas read-aloud for young children and parents looking for something slightly sentimental and bracingly wholesome."

The Christmas Oratorio: A Novel (Verba Mundi)
8.  The Christmas Oratorio: A Novel (Verba Mundi) by Göran Tunström
The list author says:
  "Here is one of those rare works that encompasses the entirety of the human drama in terms at once touching, comic, and surreal. Centering on three generations of Nordensson men, it unravels a saga as elaborately structured as Bach’s timeless titular piece. This is a novel of phenomenal breadth and insight, and a stunning debut in English by one of the most celebrated authors in Scandinavia today."
