Michael Hague's Family Christmas Treasury

Michael Hague's Family Christmas Treasury
Henry Holt & Co., 1995.

I have so many books checked out from the library right now. While I do have several picture books, I did grab quite a few treasuries, novels, and longer nonfiction titles, too. Of the treasuries, I am most excited about this one. Sadly, it's out of print. Such a shame, because I think its mix of biblical stories, carols, poetry, short stories, and excerpts are a perfect mix for the season. [Click here to browse the Table of Contents.] And of course, there's Michael Hague's warm, beautiful artwork, featured throughout the book.


















I love that he included an excerpt from "A Christmas Memory" by Truman Capote. There is a Willa Cather short story I've never read, too, and several new-to-me poems. His Wind in the Willows illustrations may be my favorite.

I have illustrated stand-alone copies of A Child's Christmas in Wales and The Gift of the Magi to read with the girls, too, and I plan on sharing those later. I also really, really want to own this new edition of A Christmas Carol. Yes, I have multiple copies already, but Yelena Bryksenkova!

    1. Yes! I have other treasuries, but they're never exactly what I want. They're either too fat to handle, too sparse, too packed (which usually means few pictures, if any), etc. This one is gorgeous and has a great selection.

  2. Beautiful book! The art is amazing. I love Christmas collections of stories/poems etc. I've had a couple of treasuries since I was little and I always enjoy reading them or just looking at the pictures.
