Christmas is…
Gail Gibbons
Non-Fiction Picture Book
Ages 3 to 6
Holiday House, 2001, 0-8234-1767-0
  Christmas means different things to different people and sometimes in the flurry of gift buying, decorating, and cooking we forget where Christmas came from. Of course there is the story of the Christ child and his birth in Bethlehem all those years ago. This story lies at the core of what Christmas is about, but what about all the symbols that we associate with Christmas such as Santa, St. Nick, angels, Christmas lights and all the other things we love about the holiday.
  In this excellent picture book the author helps young children understand how Christmas became the holiday we enjoy today and it will surely help make Christmas a more meaningful time for all.
