I love Christmas stories! Mr. Bolen does a wonderful job telling all the different stories in Nothing for Christmas & Other Holiday Tales. Each is a short story which makes this book and even easier read because you can read a story at a time which is what I did (that is what happens when you are a mom!) Each story and the characters re so endearing that you almost feel like your are there watching the story unfold right before your eyes.
