The Tall Book of Christmas review ¸ 103 summary Ù eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Dorothy Hall Smith Ittle Town of Bethlehem by Phillips Brooks What Can I Give Him by Christina Rossetti Christmas Through a Knothole by Katharine Gibson The Night Before Christmas by Clement C Moo. I ve done a little bit of research on The Tall Book of Christmas since finding the old copy I had as a kid in my parents basement a year ago and then seeing the listings on and other sites some for very dear prices The Amz listing still mentions a new edition being published by Gramercy in 2006 that did not happen As near as I can tell all copies of the book are copyright 1954 either by Harper Rowe or the Western Publishing Company my copy is one of the latter It s possible that those from Western were later reprints with the publication date never changed In any case the book has been out of print for a while and all the copies out there seem to be basically identicalWhat the book consists of is various Christmas stories poems and songs collected by Dorothy Hall Smith mostly from other popular books and magazines from the previous half century or so There was a whole series of Tall Book of collections in the same format 12 14 high by 5 12 wide and around 96 pages published between the early 1940s and the 1960s including The Tall Book of Mother Goose The Tall Book of Fairy Tales and The Tall Book of Make Believe this last is the rarest and hardest to find Most of them contain a number of selections that were rarely reprinted outside of this series and haven t stayed in print to this day so they re rather collectible This one is the only one I have and I d love to find the others somedayThe book opens with a retelling of the birth of Christ from Luke and Matthew which doesn t do a lot for this non believer the bulk of the book and the most fun part for me as a kid and now is taken up by the stories which are usually 4 6 pages long and illustrated mostly in color by Gertrude Elliott Espenscheid Very typical kidsfamily type illustrations from that period if you ve got Christmas cards or other Christmas books from the late 40s or early 50s you ll know what I mean Many of the songs and poems are fairly familiar I Saw Three Ships O Little Town of Bethlehem Away in the Manger and The Night Before Christmas among them but the stories have pretty much faded into obscurity Here s a list of themChristmas Through a Knothole Katharine GibsonBabouscka Carolyn Sherwin BaileyGiant Gummer s Christmas William Dana StreetGranny Glittens and Her Amazing Mittens Gertrude CramptonA Christmas for Bears Ray St ClairThe Christmas Cake Maud LindsayThe Puppy Who Wanted a Boy Catherine WoolleyIn the Great Walled Country Raymond MacDonald AldenMy favorites are the first a charming tale of how some kids help the town miscreant celebrate Christmas even though he s in jail and the last a fairy tale about the meaning of giving to others instead of wanting things for yourselfI love this book and in the increasingly unlikely event that I ever have kids I ll certainly be sharing it with them Given it s age and the fact that much of it is going to be unfamiliar to anyone under 50 or so it might be a hard sell for some kids so perhaps it s going to have appeal for us grown up kids nowadays especially at the prices it goes for here and elsewhere Shop around you may find a deal but I d recommend it warmly at almost any price to those who remember a slightly less frantic holiday season with an Old World or at least Old Americana feeling
