I love having my Christmas books out on my coffee table every Christmas. I look through them, read them to my little one, and even read them to my big ones. There’s something about having all my Christmas reading at hand that really makes me happy.

I can’t even tell you where this collection of stories came from. I asked my husband if he remembered getting it and he thought we’d always had it. It’s a lovely little coffee table book. I will say none of the abridged versions are fantastic but still very readable. They are fine for little ones but your older kids might notice some of the awkward cuts. The illustrations are nice. Some are very good, others are just well, nice.

If you have a love of Christmas coffee table books this would be a fine addition. But, if you are rather picky about your Christmas story books you can find better.
