 About the Book 

Christmas is a time for families -- for reading favorite stories to young ones, for singing festive and sacred songs of the season -- a time to celebrate the most joyful of holidays. Merry Christmas is a book that will become a part of familyMoreChristmas is a time for families -- for reading favorite stories to young ones, for singing festive and sacred songs of the season -- a time to celebrate the most joyful of holidays. Merry Christmas is a book that will become a part of family traditions and will be treasured by each generation. In Merry Christmas you will find eight classic stories of Christmas, including beloved tales by Dickens, O. Henry, Kenneth Grahame, Hans Christian Andersen, as well as Clement Moores irrepressible narrative poem, The Night Before Christmas. Youll also discover twenty-one of our loveliest holiday songs, each indispensable for singing around the piano with family and friends, perhaps with wassail in hand and wide-eyed children crowded round. Chosen from a rich musical heritage, they include such varied songs as Go Tell It on the Mountain, What Child is This? O Holy Night, Jingle Bells, and The Twelve Days of Christmas. New, accessible musical arrangements have also been provided. But best of all are the now classic Christmas illustrations by New England artist Donna Green which adorn the book throughout. These paintings are contemporary and timeless, loving and beautiful. They form what is undoubtedly the finest body of Christmas art ever assembled.
