Product Description:

Kindergarten-Grade 4– So begins this lovely story in which all the delights of the season are presented. Realism and fantasy are satisfyingly paired to bring the mixed-media illustrations of treasured holiday scenes to life. Many of the paintings include bits of lyrics and music from well-known carols. The message is sweet; no matter how fancy one's decorations, no matter how elaborate one's feast, or how many pretty packages wait beneath the tree, &It is love that makes the angels sing. A beautiful and timeless book.–Linda Israelson, Los Angeles Public Library END --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
