Synopsis

Christmas in France by Jack Manning

Ornaments and lights decorate Christmas trees. Small, painted figures of animals and people fill creches, scenes that look like the place of Jesus' birth. Children open gifts on Christmas Day. People eat roasted goose, turkey, chestnuts and oysters. They go to Christmas plays and musical shows called pastorales. These are the sights and sounds of Christmas in France. Come and explore the many French traditions that bring people of this country together at Christmas.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
