The holiday season is quickly approaching. All of us at Kelly’s Thoughts on Things are working diligently on compiling a fantastic holiday gift guide to share with all of our readers. Today, I am adding some great keepsake Christmas books to our list.
I think everyone is familiar with the classic, The Night Before Christmas. I know that when my son was born, it was the first holiday book I sought to buy. (How the Grinch Stole Christmas was next!)
Applesauce Press and Cider Mill Press have teamed up and back this classic, and made it even better. (If you can believe that.) The Heirloom Edition is number ONE on the New York Times Bestselling List, and it’s more than just a book.
Not only do you get the classic story of The Night Before Christmas as written by Clement C. Moore, but with The Heirloom Edition you also get an audiobook. The audiobook is narrated by Academy Award Winning Actor, Jeff Bridges.
A Classic Holiday Music CD is also included. It features twenty-one festive songs, sure to get your family into the holiday spirit! There’s also a nifty Countdown-to-Christmas Poster inside. Your child(ren) will love checking off the days until the big man arrives! Last but not least, a beautiful four paneled gatefold is inside, with a keepsake envelope for safe storage, year round. Just click on the book title above (or HERE) to get a copy for the ones you love.
The Nutcracker The Classic Edition
Another story that Christmas wouldn’t be complete without. The Nutcracker has always been my sister’s absolute favorite and reading it to my son, reminds of our childhood when she would read it to me.
In this Classic Edition, the original by E.T.A. Hoffman is re-imagined with gorgeously lavish illustrations by Christina Hess. I seriously can’t get over how beautiful the pictures are in this book. Don’t just take my word for it, head on over to Cider Mill Press and get your family a copy.
