This is a nice collection of Golden Books for a child's Christmas. It includes the classic 'The Christmas Story,' which tells the Nativity story with beautiful, rich illustrations by the illustrator of 'Baby Dear' and 'Baby's Christmas'; 'The Animals' Christmas Eve,' which has a nice rhyme about the animals at the first Christmas, counting up from one to twelve; 'The Little Christmas Elf,' about a small elf who works in Santa's workshop and who learns about not giving up on a task; the classic 'The Night Before Christmas' with Clement Moore's poem and nice illustrations; and 'The Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas,' which is nice for fans of the Poky Little Puppy.I am glad that I got this for my daughter, and am sure that we will enjoy these books for years to come. There's a reason Golden Books are classic! :)
My great aunt purchased this set for my daughter and we absolutely love it. My daughter loves Golden Books and we were thrilled to have these added to our collection. This is a boxed set of individual Golden Books (as opposed to several books in one large book in a treasury) which all have a Christmas theme/message.The Animals Christmas Eve and The Christmas Story both tell about the birth of Jesus. The Animals Christmas Eve uses counting and rhyming to tell us the story, and The Christmas Story tells the story in a way which I find similar to a children's Bible.The Little Christmas Elf is a book about the smallest elf in Santa's workshop who is working to complete a toy in time for Christmas, but she is too late in finishing it to get it on Santa's sleigh in time. At the end of the evening when Santa comes back to the workshop, it turns out he needs the toy after all, for a baby born on Christmas.The Night Before Christmas is a beautifully illustrated version of the famous poem by Clement C. Moore. The illustrations show a Victorian family in their home receiving a visit from St. Nick.The Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas is basically a Christmas version of the Poky Little Puppy. It's a wonderful companion to the original, as it tells a story about friendship and giving.This is a great set for kids and adults to enjoy together.
I give my wife a Christmas book each year - This year she got five! I purchased primarily to get the Pokey Little Puppy's First Christmas because our children loved reading it when they were young. The stories are classic tales and beautifully illustrated. This is a terrific boxed set for children but was perfect for our family as well.
I bought the bundle and split them up to give to my two, two year old granddaughters at Christmas. They were my favorites and my children's favorites when we were young. It's nice to be able to pass them on to a third generation.
I had this set when my children were little and we took them out every year at Christmas time to read together...I bought these for my grandchildren this year, and the reaction from my kids when THEIR kids opened them was priceless!
This is the best collection for my child who is five. He is fascinated by the Nativity Story as well as the Elf story. The baby book is too young but he likes the counting Animal nativity book.
These books are great! They are nice stories to read around the holidays or anytime really. Our daughter requests these to be read weekly! Great value for five books.
