Synopsis

The Lion Book of Two-Minute Christmas Stories by Elena Pasquali

This collection of ten Christmas stories, retold with warmth and wisdom, includes a retelling of the Nativity story from the Gospels as well as tales and legends associated with Christmas traditions from around the world. Together these stories reflect the message of peace and goodwill at Christmas. Each story is retold in a short but continuous narrative, with quick and quirky illustrations adding to the momentum. The playful element is enhanced by text that 'interacts' with the pictures by means of join-in words so that they are fun to share with children. The large text and carefully managed readability mean that such a book is also great fun for young children who are learning to read. Part of Lion's Two-Minute series which also includes Bible Stories, Parables, Bedtime Stories and Animal Stories.

Reviews

The stories stand alone and this leaves the opportunity for parents to discuss the stories with their young ones, to draw them out on what message they get from the story.

A charming collection . . . short tales that are full of good humor and just the right length to make the perfect bedtime read. -- Armadillo magazine
