Yule love this book
A breathless race through the busy days leading up to Dec. 25th, "Christmas in Noisy Village" is packed with the simple pleasures of handmade gifts and homemade winter fun. Astrid Lindgren tells a lively tale of children from three neighboring farms caught up in the excitement of the holiday season. Excellent illustrations by Ilon Wikland record every detail, starting with a bustling kitchen scene where ginger snaps are being baked. No one ever seems to be standing still: From dancing around a Christmas tree to playing Blind Man's Bluff, the children are a blur of action and color. I take this book down from the shelf every December even though my children are grown. It's a Christmas tradition. A great read-aloud book: Please, read it again.
