Bringing a classic Christmas carol to life

White ChristmasChristmas brings fun traditions like decorating the tree, hanging stockings, and singing Christmas carols. And one of the most famous Christmas carols would have to be Irving Berlin's White Christmas.

In White Christmas, illustrator Michael Hague has brought the classic Christmas carol to life in a beautifully illustrated book that lends itself to a fun sing-aloud. A fantasy artist, Hague fills this White Christmas with snow fairies, reindeer, woodland creatures, sleigh rides, Santa Claus, and more. Young readers will be introduced to the song and encouraged to learn the classic as there's sheet music included in the back. If anything, this book is sure to get you in the spirit for your own White Christmas.

  1. Lori, it looks like a lovely Christmas book!

  2. Thanks, Sharon. Although it's only the words to the famous song, it was fun to look at the illustrations. Throw in some snow, reindeer and Santa, and you're sure to feel the Xmas spirit! :) Happy holidays!
