The first one is All About Christmas. and it is the ultimate in Christmas books. It has poems, scriptures, recipes, Christmas trivia, jokes, and Christmas traditions from around the world. I love that it had short stories, fun stuff to read as a family, and some traditions we could try in our family. So many things that can help you celebrate the spirit of the season.
