Probably the most definitive collection of Christmas stories, this volume has stories for children ranging in age from 5-12 years. These stories tell of the experience of people who lived at the time of the birth of the Child, and who - each in their own way sought to worship the new-born king.

This book is a colourful collection carefully chosen to show the spirit of Christmas in many different facets. The stories are divided into five sections: Advent, the Birth of the Child, the Christmas night through the ages, Christmas in the world, and the Three King's time. Included in these 50 stories are stories by Hans Christian Andersen, Leonid Andreiev, Jane Clement, Maxim Gorki, Gerhard Klein, Selma Lagerlof, Jeanna Oterdahl, Peter Rosegger, Ruth Sawyer, Edzard Schaper, Jakob Streit, Henry Van Dyke.
