This hardcover, 9"x11", 26 page tale of Christmas past, will enchant the little ones with how simple acts of love and the the true spirit of Christmas, brought joy to Lidia as a child. And now, as a grandmother herself, she brought the same happiness to her grandchildren. The pictures are large with generous use of soft, pastel-like colors, with words that even a little one could read.
It is a delightfully written story of how the Christmases in Lidia's childhood were celebrated; not with running around and buying and spending and stressing, as we tend to do in this present world, but in simpler more cherished time of understanding the essence of Christmas; in coming together as family and finding the simple stuffs around us to prepare for the birth of our Lord.
Joining together with artist Laura Logan, both pen and picture tell the story of how Lidia, her parents, her grandparents, and her brother, spent the Christmas season when she was a child, growing up during more sparse times. But times in which the simplicities of life were the most endearing. We join Lidia as she is recounting these stories to her own grandchildren, and the lesson and impact such closeness imparts to young children as the older generation passes on the memories of a era gone by and the joy that it brought to them.Read more ›
to truly capture the moment. The book was somewhat of a surprise in that I expected a more mature content, however this will be a new take on the traditional Christmas stories we share. I enjoyed Lidia's childhood memories and the beautiful Italian cookie recipes and tree decorations are splendid!

I bought this for my mother on my baby's first Christmas. It may be because I'm a sappy new mother, but I cried when I read the beautifully illustrated story. My mom loved it, too.Published 19 months ago by T.Miller
