|I want to dive deeper into all those stories over the Christmas holidays. Some of the tales are a bit out of time of course and when reading them with my kids I reword or simplify some text passages because both are too young to know what a "dairyman" is or a "storm window". Some of the Christmas traditions they never heard of but together with the pictures the stories work very well. The book is edited by Noel Daniel and published in German and English.|
Merry Christmas to you my dear readers! Thanks a lot for sending me your wonderful books and thanks so much for your support and feedback here and over there!
Most I would love to have the original edition by "Too many mittens" (below), written by Florence Slobodkin and illustrated by Louis Slobodkin in 1958.
