Synopsis

Christmas Box by Chris S. Stephens

A beautifully illustrated picture book about the customs and traditions of Christmas in times past, for children aged 6-11. This is a treasure chest of material on topics that appeal to children year after year, and will make social history come a little closer to contemporary life. Sections on: Christmas cards; Christmas recipes; Legends of Robins; Christmas games and presents; Christmas poems; Wassailing; A Christmas folktale; A Child's Christmas in Wales; Boxing Day traditions; New Year customs; Christmas celebrations in schools; The emphasis is on how Christmas was celebrated at different stages of the twentieth century, though many of the customs have a longer history. Chris Stephens has assembled a fascinating collection of material which will appeal not only to contemporary children but also to their parents and grandparents! This is a lovely gift to give within the family, because the illustrations and the snippets of information are sure to spark off exchanges of experiences between generations. Festive endpaper and plenty of holly berries link the varied glimpses of Christmases past.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
