    One thought on “Angelina's Christmas”

    1. I'm predisposed to adore Angelina so I may be a bit biased in my review. Still, I thought this was a nice little story about sharing the joys of Christmas with others (and the unexpected rewards that can come from giving for the sake of giving alone!)

    2. My all-time favorite Angelina book and favorite Christmas picture book. The color palette, costumes, and coziness get me every time.

    3. I just love the pictures!Ages: 4 - 8Cleanliness: Santa Claus is in the story. A boy whines.#christmasLike my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. I also have Clean Guides (downloadable PDFs) which enable you to clean up your book before reading it! Visit my website: The Book Radar.

    4. I enjoyed reading Angelina's Christmas. I enjoyed meeting Angelina and her family. I loved how thoughtful and empathetic Angelina was. She realizes that there is one house in the village that is not decorated. She notices that there is one "old man huddled by a tiny fire." She learns from her parents that this old man is Mr. Bell, a retired postman. She decides that she will do something special for him so he won't be all alone at Christmas time. (And Angelina isn't the only one joining in to he [...]

    6. Angelina's Christmasis a lovely story in theAngelina Ballerinaseries. It tells the tale of how Angelina and her brother Henry exemplify the Christmas spirit and share the holiday with a lonely older gentleman. In return the gentleman, Mr. Bell, shows them his Santa costume and becomes part of their holiday for years to come. It is a sweet story that flows smoothly through the beautiful illustrations. It is a wonderful addition to any holiday collection and a lovely piece of theAngelina Ballerina [...]

    7. This is my first Angelina title and I will read more of them. A great Christmas story of giving, sharing, and including other people. Angelina was a cute mouse and I loved her and her friends illustrated in the Nutcracker for her school play. The illustrations are great and Mr. Bell is well drawn as an older mouse. Somehow I noticed a hint of something English about this story/illustrations. The author did spend time living in England and that experience pleasingly is a subtle enhancement in thi [...]

    8. I'm an Angelina fan - children's author Katharine Holabird and illustrator Helen Craig combine once again to work their magic in this Christmas tale. Angelina and her cousin Henry show true Christmas spirit when they visit old Mr Bell, the retired postman who lives all alone. Their generosity is rewarded when they discover that there is a real Santa Claus living right in their own village! (taken right from the jacket) How could you not want to read it?!

    9. I read this story today to my 1st graders and I loved the message it has. Angelina notices that every house in town is decorated except that of Mr. Bell's, an elderly man. She decides to make his Christmas extra special and in turn, Mr. Bell shares some very nice stories of when he played Santa Clause many years before. They both have an extra special Christmas thanks to the friendship of the other.

    10. This is a sweet book in the Angelina Ballerina series by Katharine Holabird and Helen Craig. It honors the spirit of the season and teaches about goodwill toward others, especially the lonely and needy among us. Our girls enjoy these stories and I liked this one more than many of the others in the series.

    11. Craig's art is wonderful! It's as important to the success of these books as is the story. Here Holabird introduces young readers to the idea of remembering the needy and/or elderly (or lonely), especially at Christmas. The emphasis on 'goodness' reminds me of the tales written in the early 1900s.

    12. Definitely a picture book for girls, this story is heart warming and adorable with matching illustrations. The problem is the book is so sweet and pretty I could barely stand it! It has a wonderful message but don't bother with this book for your boy or tomboy in your life!

    13. This was a sweet Christmas story. Angelina certainly had the Christmas spirit and gave of herself to one who needed the company. The story was well written and the pictures are darling and it kept my children (3 & 5) entertained and interested.

    14. Publishers Weekly (September 25, 2006)When Angelina spies the cold and darkened home of the retired village postman, she decides to bring him some Yuletide cheer in Angelina's Christmas by Katharine Holabird, illus. by Helen Craig. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    15. Fans of Angelina will not be disappointed with this tale of holiday goodwill. Much less "pink" than her other books. In this one, Angelina reaches out to a lonely old man, who then turns around to spread joy and cheer to the children of the town. Predictable, but sweet.

    16. I loved this book as a child, and my two-year-old daughter loves it now. I really like how the simple story communicates the importance of giving to others.

    17. This book has kindness and caring for others in its roots. Good for building character and teaching acceptance.

    18. This was a very sweet book and the illustrations are spectaular. My copy of Angelina's Christmas is signed by the illustrator and the author.

    19. Angelina and Henry decide to make Christmas special for the old postman so that he won't feel lonely anymore.

    20. The television version of Angelina Ballerina, the mouse who dances, is sometimes a bit too preachy, but this little book, though it does have a bit of moral teaching, is not. And the little drawings are lots of fun. Recommended for all tiny dancers.
