Peter Spier’s Christmas by Peter Spier

Peter Spier's ChristmasThe delightful illustrations in this wordless book take us through the Christmas season by highlighting the traditions of one family. The first page starts out with Christmas decorations appearing throughout the town’s shops and streets.  As the pages turn, we watch a family’s preparations and excitement for the coming holiday.  The house to decorate, cookies to bake, presents to hide, cards to make.  All of this and more, much more, can be found in the detailed drawings within this book. 

My children enjoyed poring over this book when they were young, and now that they are grown we find that this holiday book is still one of our favorites.  It certainly evokes warm feelings of all those moments and memories of one of the most wonderful times of the year.
