    About The Book

    They are some of the warmest childhood memories, those unhurried evenings around the fireplace, Christmas tree, or dinner table, when there was time for a story... Now, with this collection, you can keep the story-telling tradition alive in your family, and pass it on to your children or grandchildren.

    Home for Christmas includes twenty time-­honored ­favorites including several by world-famous children's authors - Selma Lagerlöf, Henry van Dyke, Ruth Sawyer, B. J. Chute, Elizabeth Goudge, Pearl S. Buck, Nikolai S. Lesskov, Madeleine L Engle, Ernst Wiechert, and Rebecca Caudill; others are little-known European tales not available in English anywhere else. Selected for their literary quality and their spiritual integrity, they will resonate with readers of all ages, year after year. With twenty woodcuts by David G. Klein.
