Home for Christmas: Stories for Young and Old By Pearl S. Buck

For readers who are tired of Christmas commercialism, or who feel that Father Christmas doesn't tell the whole story, these classic gems provide an alternative. Selected for their insightfulness, spiritual value, and literary quality (nothing moralistic here) they project the spirit of the season in a fresh, compelling manner that will resonate with readers of all ages - from children too young to read to themselves, to parents and grandparents who enjoy reading stories aloud. "Home for Christmas" includes time-tested favorites by some the world's most beloved children's authors - Selma Lagerlof, Ruth Sawyer, Elizabeth Goudge and Pearl Buck - as well as little-known European stories appearing in English for the first time.



Genuine, nice, feel good stories!! No commercialism, no overly cliched icons. I love how the stories told of times long ago when things and life was much simpler and people were kinder and much more willing to help those in need. Brought me back to the good ol' days before we were all over run with busy schedules and technology, when we actually had time for each other. I challenge each and every one of you to take some quiet time and read and really absorb the meaning behind these short stories. I'm sure it will warm your heart as it did mine.
