Reviews The Children's Book of Christmas Stories
- I listened to this a year ago and for some reason didn't shelve it. I've marked it as dnf as I didn't listen to every story. Some of the tales were interesting. Others not so much.
- This book had some really nice Christmas stories. The book was put together in the early 1900s. There was a story from the time of King James of England in the 1600s, and a story placed near Trenton New Jersey in 1776, during the American Revolution. The language usage was interesting, as were the traditions over the years and different cultures.
- 3.5 stars (liked it)A nice variety of 35 Christmas stories which are also available on the Gutenberg website:https://www.gutenberg.org/files/5061/...
- This is a good Christmas book. However there are a few stories that are boring.
- Interesting to see Christmas through the ages, a good perspective to where Christmas came for to where it currently is
- A great collection of old classics and new Christmas favorites!! Good read!!
- The stand-out from this collection of short stories is Hans Christian Andersen's "The Fir Tree," which, in describing Christmas from the point of view of the tree, is horrifying and grotesque.
