The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning Jane Ray’s beautiful illustrations bring these stories which capture some of the traditions as Christmas from far and wide vividly to life. The collection includes the traditional story of the Nativity as well as Hans Christian Andersen’s cautionary tale, The Little Fir Tree. Grandmothers everywhere – and especially at Christmas – are celebrated in Baboushka.
The Lion Classic Christmas Stories by Mary Joslin
This beautifully presented volume of classic Christmas stories from around the world is written for children aged 7+ to enjoy reading alone, or for reading aloud in a classroom setting or with family sitting round a log fire!
A mixture of stories from the Christian heritage and more secular tales, these retellings all evoke the true spirit of Christmas around the world. Included are Nativity stories from the Gospels of Luke and Matthew, the stories of Baboushka and Papa Panov, Fir Tree and The Nutcracker.
The whole collection sparkles with colourful and detailed artwork from Jane Ray.
Praise for Jane Ray:
Rich in detail, Jane Ray's stunning illustrations capture the magic of our world Julia Eccleshare about Stories for a Fragile Planet
