For anyone who has spent time in Europe during Christmastime, this is sure to bring back fond memories.

This book explains German Christmas traditions with good detail. Each tradition is written out both in English and in German. Overall the translation is good, but centered more on meaning than word for word. The accompanying CD is narrated in German - I didn't realize the stories would also be on the CD so this was a nice surprise.

At first the pages can be a little overwhelming to look at and might be difficult for a child to follow because of all the text, but the pictures are nice and colorful.

The voice of the Woman on the CD is very dramatic with a strong vibrato - Good German style, but could be seen by some as a bit over the top. The childrens choir is great.

love it! we listen to it and my daughter dances around... i want her to be familiar with other languages. this is my fav of all the ones we have bought. it also teaches a bit about German culture and traditions too which i find valuable in fostering a sense of others-centeredness. i want my kids to know and understand that we Americans aren't "it" and that there are very interesting and valuable things to learn and appreciate about ather cultures and people groups.

This is a charming little book and the associated CD makes it a wonderful tool for learning how to hear spoken German. The songs are well chosen and quite lovely. I was surprised at how many of these songs are also selections on Deutsche Grammophon's "das Weihnachtsalbum" Christmas Album: Original Masters, which is itself a five star choice for any kind of Chistmas music.

I have two small observations: The translations from Greman to English are not what I would call "literal" but rather "paraphrase." But that is not really bad because one should always make one's own translation. Second, I would have omitted the English versions of some of the songs. But these are just "de minimus" observations.

I bought this book encouraged by the reviews I read. I'm sorry to say I cannot recommend it as highly as some of the other reviewers. I found the music terrible - very "Ronco" or "Acme" in style, not beautiful or even particularly musical. The translations are unbelievably bad - not just condensed but totally inaccurate. For example, the English translation on P.6 has the family decorating the Advent wreath with holly leaves, when the German says "pine cones." Pp. 27 and 27 are particularly poor - I've never heard a German version of "O Come, All Ye Faithful" in the decades I lived in Germany - and there are so many other lovely, truly traditional German carols that could have been included instead. The author(s), though presumably German, either moved away at a very young age or didn't bother to do their research, or both. Page 27 is absolutely incorrect - the Sternsaenger do NOT chalk the letters above the door, the local priest does so, because it is a blessing. I would have expected the "Caspar, Melchior, Balthasar" explanation from a German child of about 10, but not an adult author supposedly imparting historical traditions. The C+M+B actually stands for: Christus mansionem benedicat" which means "Christ bless this house." I would give this book away but it is so full of abominable translation and gross misinformation that I am simply going to throw it away. Extremely disappointed!

I first saw this book at a friend's house on Christmas Eve. I LOVED the German with English translations. I ended up singing some of the songs for the guests. The songs reminded me of my childhood in Germany! Great book!!
