I ABSOLUTLEY ADORE THIS BOOK! I REVIEWED IT FOR A CLASS SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND INSTANTLY FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. AS I READ THE POETIC STORY LINE AND ENJOYED I'TS BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED PAGES, I KNEW IT WOULD BECOME A PART OF MY HOLIDAY COLLECTION. YOU CAN ALMOST FEEL THE WARMTH OF THE FIREPLACE AND THE BRISK CHILL OF THE SNOW OUTDOORS AS YOU GLIDE GENTLY THROUGH THE PAGES. I ALMOST FELT THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN FROM MY OWN CHILDHOOD. IT'S A MUST READING FOR THOSE WHO ARE STILL WARMED BY THE LOVE OF FAMILY AND CAPTIVATED BY THE EXCITEMENT AND ANTICIPATION OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON!
