Format: Hardcover
In Christmas Is..., author and illustrator Gail Gibbons showcases the many things that Christmas symbolizes for people including the birth of the Christ child, Saint Nicholas and Santa Claus, angels, Christmas trees, mistletoe, lights, cards, carols, presents, prayers, peace, love and joy. Christmas Is... would make a wonderfully appropriate and much appreciated addition to any family, school, or community library holiday books collection.

Great book for young children Dec 14 2011
By MMD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for young children - the text is simple yet engaging and the illustrations are very pretty. I teach four year olds and this book is a great way to introduce nonfiction that is relevant and meaningful. It does reference the Christian meaning of Christmas and Christian traditions related to Christmas which may not work well in a public school setting. I have always loved Gail Gibbons books and this one is no exception.

love it! Jan. 25 2013
By SarahM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm an ESL teacher, and I use this book every year to explain Christmas traditions to my students. It reviews the basics of many Christmas traditions, including religious and secular traditions. The students love it, and the pictures help the students make connections to what they are hearing about in class. Great book!
