    A keeper for your holiday bookshelf!

    One Family¿s Christmas is a sequel to Kelso¿s earlier picture book, A Christmas Angel, also illustrated by Oregon-based artist K.C. Snider.<BR/><BR/>Once again, it is Christmas time in Oregon and the children are preparing to decorate their Christmas tree. Guided by their father, they venture into the mysterious attic to look for beautiful ornaments. They find a delicate red glass ball, as well as garland and tinsel. Then they discover a lovely yet old porcelain angel dressed in white velvet, its gown a bit yellowish from age. This is the same angel from Kelso¿s first book, an angle that has been in their family for generations. Their father decides it¿s all right to put the ornament on top of their tree this year. After all, ¿treasures don¿t mean much if you can¿t enjoy them once in a while.¿ Soon they cut their tree, then later decorate it as the youngsters learn more about their ancestors and family history. <BR/><BR/>The story has a quiet, calming tone, perfect for those holiday nights of reading by the fireplace. K.C. Snider¿s illustrations, soft and warm, with pastel greens and reds and goldens, bring an atmosphere of melancholy and old-fashioned feel to the merriment of the season. Though only 24 pages, the book has a lot of text. At the end of the book, there¿s a special section about genealogy and how kids may find out about their family history, as well as internet resources, a pedigree-chart and family record sheet. This is one of those Christmas books you¿ll want to keep on your permanent Christmas bookshelf, one to be read again and again at every holiday season.
