Great book to read to children when talking about what their traditions are for the holidays. Every year the little girl does the same traditions at her grandparents house where she lives. They decorate a christmas tree, go to church Christmas night and Christmas morning, then everyone comes over to eat.

A young girl and her grandparents eagerly await Christmas each winter. This fun story really captures the feeling of Christmas for a child. Also, the pictures are very realistic and colorful.
