A Child S Christmas In Brooklyn

Mr. Crocitto has created a new Christmas classic with A Child's Christmas in Brooklyn - the poetic tale of Frank's growing up in Brooklyn in the 1940s, during the threat of war. This beautifully illustrated gift book is reminiscent of Dylan Thomas' A Child's Christmas in Wales, and poignantly captures the true spirit of the Christmas season as reflected in the traditions of a large Italian-American family and the love and respect that binds it together. The reader dives into the Crocitto Christmas from start to finish - sharing his touching, and sometimes hilarious, moments. Hanging the house-lights with Grandpa, sprinkling the strufoli with Grandma for the family feast, and searching for the perfect skimpy Christmas tree with Nicola Santa Crocitto. This is no mere reminiscence, however. Frank believes we can return to that same fresh state of childhood again - when we saw the world as a place of beauty and wonder - in the midst of our 'grown-up' lives. To feel that way again, A Child's Christmas in Brooklyn can transport us there.

Christmas In Plains

Jimmy Carter remembers Christmas in Plains, Georgia, the source of spiritual strength, respite, friendship, and vacation fun in this charming portrait. In a beautifully rendered portrait, Jimmy Carter remembers the Christmas days of his Plains boyhood—the simplicity of family and community gift-giving, his father’s eggnog, the children’s house decorations, the school Nativity pageant, the fireworks, Luke’s story of the birth of Christ, and the poignancy of his black neighbors’ poverty. Later, away at Annapolis, he always went home to Plains, and during his Navy years, when he and Rosalynn were raising their young family, they spent their Christmases together recreating for their children the holiday festivities of their youth. Since the Carters returned home to Plains for good, they have always been there on Christmas Day, with only one exception in forty-eight years: In 1980, with Americans held hostage in Iran, Jimmy, Rosalynn, and Amy went by themselves to Camp David, where they felt lonely. Amy suggested that they invite the White House staff and their families to join them and to celebrate. Nowadays the Carters’ large family is still together at Christmastime, offering each other the gifts and the lifelong rituals that mark this day for them. With the novelist’s eye that enchanted readers of his memoir An Hour Before Daylight, Jimmy Carter has written another American classic, in the tradition of Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory and Dylan Thomas’s A Child’s Christmas in Wales.

Donald Hall draws on his own childhood memories and gives himself the thing he most wanted but didn't get as a boy: a Christmas at Eagle Pond. It’s the Christmas season of 1940, and twelve-year-old Donnie takes the train to visit his grandparents' place in rural New Hampshire. Once there, he quickly settles into the farm’s routines. In the barn, Gramp milks the cows and entertains his grandson by speaking rhymed pieces, while Donnie’s eyes are drawn to an empty stall that houses a graceful, cobwebby sleigh. Now Model A's speed over the wintry roads, which must be plowed, and the beautiful sleigh has become obsolete. When the church pageant is over, the gifts are exchanged, and the remains of the Christmas feast put away, the air becomes heavy with fine snowflakes—the kind that fall at the start of a big storm—and everyone wonders, how will Donnie get back to his parents on time?
