Countdown to Christmas

Have you ever longed for an Old-Fashioned Christmas? To experience holiday traditions from another century when Christmas wasn't quite so commercialized?

In her book, Countdown to Christmas, you will find literary treasures for every day from December 1 through Christmas Day. Within its pages, you will discover selections from well known authors Louisa May Alcott, Charles Dickens, Edith Nesbit, Margaret Sidney, and Eugene Field. In addition to each daily reading, Ms. Puetz has provided a wonderful variety of activities to entertain and delight your children throughout the month of December. You will find recipes, vintage games, poems, Christmas music, crafts and more.
