Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Directions are given from planning a party to preparing Christmas dinner, wrapping presents, and writing thank you notes for presents you didn't want to receive. One suggestion in "Alternative Uses for Brussels Sprouts" is to dip them in chocolate and give a box of them to your least favorite relative. One may consider an idea from "Christmas Practical Jokes." such as: filling someone's trash can with water when it is below zero. Information is given for picking a tree, short stories, customs from around the world, and how to say "Merry Christmas" in many languages. There are facts about reindeer, craft ideas, unusual recipes and games for children and adults. At the end "Things to Do the Day After Christmas" suggests having friends you haven't yet seen come over and help eat up the leftovers. Another section gives ideas on: "How to Pretend Christmas Isn't Happening." There is just enough humor to lighten the many old ideas for a traditional celebration. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman

Gr 5 Up

This volume offers a miscellany of advice, lore, and tips for those who either dread or have little experience preparing for Christmas. The author provides gift suggestions for children, teens, and adults; meal plans for dinners, including those where vegetarian guests are expected; possible hiding places for presents; ideas for gift wrapping; stories behind some traditions; and much more. Foster also includes jokes, trivia, and spoof thank-you letters, but the book is bound to hold more appeal for adults than for children. Only the most comprehensive Christmas collections need to consider it.-Virginia Walter, University of California, Los Angeles
