Hardcover - ages 4-8
My thoughts: Brightly and beautifully illustrated, The Christmas House is a warm story of a young family who has moved into a neighborhood but to whom the neighbors simply haven't warmed up.
Just prior to Christmas the neighbors each doing his or her own thing - skateboarding, walking, shopping - passes by the little house aglow with warm lights. As they pass by, they are enthralled by the beautiful piano music coming from inside.
One by one they step up to have a listen. Then the door opens...... well, it just magically becomes a warm happy place of music, formed friendships, and giving to less fortunate. The warmth of the holidays fuses with the beauty of Christmas music.
