When you love all the classics of Christmas stories, you know you need this collection! The nostalgia, the quintessential Christmas stories and the utmost classics are collected in this edition. Let yourself be a child again; believe in the magic of Christmas. For me, there was a return to well-known stories, such as A Christmas Carol, and then some others that I did not know as well, such as Little Piccola. Each story includes the original content as well as information about the author and a bit of history. Appropriate for all ages and all lovers of all Christmas stories.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher via NetGalley and all opinions expressed are solely my own, freely given.

Such a perfect collection of Christmas stories! Imbued with sheet music for classic Christmas Carols put this over the top for me. At the end of each story is an About the Author and A Bit of History which was a nice addition. All stories most of us have read and some we maybe haven’t but should! Coming out at the perfect time for either your own collection to bring a little Christmas to your spirit or as a gift for a friend. Thank you NetGalley for the free copy in exchange for my honest review. I loved it!

Love!

I grew up with various "treasuries" and had thought they'd gone the way of the dodo bird when I came across this one. I adore that it has short stories, novels, and songs all bound up into one volume for easy perusing throughout the season. There are the classics we all know and includes a few that I hadn't picked up before. Slap on this gorgeous cover and you have a perfect addition to any Christmas collection

Who doesn’t enjoy a classic Christmas treasury?
I love Christmas and all the fun nostalgia and traditions surrounding it, so giving this book an opportunity was a given! We like to remember the try reason for the season, but some fun, harmless reads such as this one keep the spirit flowing strong all season long! Definitely give this sweet collection a shot and have your heart filled with a little joy this Christmas. 🎄❤️🎁

Oh I do love Christmas and I do love classics and this had both of these things in spades. I loved ready this book, remembering Christmases past and looking forward to Christmas in the future as well.

A lovely way to celebrate Christmas and a great gift idea for those who love Christmas as much as I do. There are Christmas Carols, classic stories and poems that will make you smile. A great read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thank you NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.

A Classic Christmas Treasury is a wonderful anthology of classic Christmas stories, poems, carols, and author information. A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite classic Christmas tales and I really enjoyed reading the others as well. This book would make a lovely Christmas gift for all ages.

Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group – Rock Point, Rock Point for allowing me to be an early reader. All opinions are my own.

If you've seen any of my reviews before on any platform, you'll know how much of a Christmas nut I am, and this extends to Christmas books (at time of writing, I have 32 copies of A Christmas Carol). And everything about this just screamed joy. The cover, the authors, the stories chosen. It was definitely my happy place. Even more when I read it on a warm July evening. There's something quite naughty about festive activities in the summer, and as someone who despises hot weather, I am here for it!

And the cover is gorgeous! I know I've been sent an advanced digital copy - which I am very grateful for - I will have to buy myself a physical copy once it's released as I think it's the kind of book you need on the shelf, as it's just really beautiful and warming and cosy, and would make a great festive present.

As well as the already mentioned stories in the synopsis, we also have:

- The First Noel
- Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
- Deck the Hall
- Up on the Housetop
- Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
- The Boy With the Box

That makes 16 in all. It's a mixture of songs and carols, short stories, poems, novellas, and longer, fairytales, things I love and thing's I'm only just reading. Even for a Christmas fan like me, I wasn't aware of some of them and so it's a great introduction to new and old readers alike.

It also gave me an excuse to reread A Christmas Carol, not that I need an excuse - I usually try to read it several times a year.

Full of warmth and charm and hope and joy - this would be the perfect addition to anyone's festive celebrations.

A lovely collection of some classic Christmas tales, interspersed with music score and historical knowledge about the text and authorship. Makes for a wonderful, festive read for all ages.

Perfect addition to all Christmas classic lovers, a beautiful collection and great gift for the holiday.

Definitely waited to read this one for the season and will be purchasing for myself.

Lovely compilation of various Christmas elements including stories, poems, and sheet music. Well balanced with shorter poems and content between the longer work. Being able to jump to various chapters on a kindle or printed version to reference the pieces and having all of these in one place will make this a lovely addition to a home library. In a printed copy it could be improved with the addition of art throughout, but with classics like these there might be some beauty to keeping it simple. The cover art looks stunning and timeless.

Lovely collection for Christmas time.
(Great gift too)It will get you in the mood for Christmas.

I really liked that it wasn't just prose but also poems and carols.

Definitely going to read this again next Christmas and recommend it to friends and family.

The book has such a delightful collection of Christmas tales, Christmas Carols, and poems. They take us back to the magical time. They are certain to get the reader in festive mood. I loved rereading A Christmas Carol and The Nutcracker and the mouse. I loved the other tales and poems too including The First Noel, ‘Twas the night before christmas, The little Piccola, The Fir Tree and The boy with the box. The other tales are good too. The tales have focused on Christmas Spirit, Sacrifice, love, Birth of Jesus, exchanging gifts and many more values.

Thanks to Netgalley

This book cover is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!
In this book you get a bunch of Christmas stories to read throughout the month of December. You also get some sheet music in there to sing along with. This is a beautiful collection and one I most definitely need with some of my absolute favorite holiday stories. You also get little notes about the authors of the stories and these little tidbits of history. Absolutely magical.
