From Kirkus Reviews: "Twelve brand new stories by some outstanding writers will prove first rate reading for parents, teachers and library story hour. There's a whiff of China in a story by Cornelia Spencer; there's something of the old country in a refugee story; there are stories about food and Christmas trees and Christmas magic and Christmas toys. And the final story is an Irish tale. Mary Walsh, Winifred Bromhall, Emma Brock, Walter Brooks and other familiar names are among the contributors."
