Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Christmastime and the Newbery Medal seem an almost irresistable combination. For what better time than Christmas, that most family-oriented of holidays, to read stories written by authors honored as winners of the John Newbery Medal for their contribution for literature for children? This collection comprises stories by authors today's children know and love, from E.L. Kongsburg and Nancy Willard to Beverly Cleary. It also contain stories by writers familiar to their parents and, perhaps, to their grandparents, from Ruth Sawyer and Rachel Field to Lois Lenski, Eleanor Estes, and Madeleine L'Engle.

Some of these stories are humorous. Childen will laugh at the antics of Ramona Quimby in "Ramona, the Sheep Suit, and the Three Wise Persons" and at Eliot Miles's Christmas wish in E.L. Kongsburg's "Eliot Miles Does Not Wish You a Merry Christmas Because..." Others of the collection recall the christmases of years past, as in "Once in the Year" by Elizabeth Yates and "The Hundred Dresses" by Eleanor Estes. And others, like Madeleine L'Engle's "A Full House," remind us again of the true meaning of Christmas.

This is a collection to savor and to read aloud. It's a book that can be read by the fire, on the beach, in the car on the way to Grndmother's house, or on any available lap. Most of all, it's a book for sharing and for celebrating the joys of Christmas.

A portion of the royalties from this book will be donated to the American Library Association, administrators of the John Newbery Medal.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S. J. Meyer on April 8, 2003
Format: Hardcover
This collection of short christmas stories is wonderful. This is a great book to start a Christmas family tradition. Some stories teach a lesson, some warm your heart and soul and others just make you feel good. I take it with me when I babysit in December, and often read favorite stories over and over. This is the kind of book you share with friends and family!

I bought this book for my 4 granddaughters, ages 5 through 13. They all love to read and the oldest enjoys reading to the younger sisters. They have enjoyed this book very much as it was a Christmas present. There is something in it for all ages.
