Praise For Christmas Is Coming!: Celebrate the Holiday with Art, Stories, Poems, Songs, and Recipes

"Lavishly illustrated. . . Original poems by Naomi Shihab
Nye, Alma Flor Ada, Lee Bennett Hopkins, and others (and a few new recipes)
add a touch of modern sensibility."

— Horn Book Magazine

"This nostalgic volume of Christmas stories, poems, carols, recipes, and memorabilia celebrates the holiday’s most deeply held traditions. . . offering reflections both joyous and melancholy. Readers who see Christmas as an assemblage of activities and traditions will value this marvelous treasury."

— Publishers Weekly
