Editorial Reviews

A Little Book of Christmas was published in the early 1900s. This book was a popular and effective tool for reminding citizens of the Christmas spirit of charity. Author Bangs was an accomplished editor and satirist in addition to being a prolific author. He wrote his first books while he worked as Associate Editor for Life magazine. Like the narratives found in Life magazine, these stories are intelligently told and emotionally stirring. Present-day listeners will appreciate this gentle antidote to the rampant commercialization of Christmas. Narrator Mariann Froulow performs these four pithy stories in a relatively unsentimental and casual manner. Her classic American accent renders the old-fashioned language pleasant and accessible.

Publisher's Summary

"Mr. Bangs has caught the spirit of the 'Christmas Carols,' and phrased it in his own style, so well liked in America. Not in a long time have we had Christmas stories so good as 'The Conversion of Hetherington,' 'The Child Who Had Everything But...', 'Santa Claus and Little Billie,' and 'The House of the Seven Santas' - the four stories in this volume. Mr. Bangs' sense of humor never fails, his diction is well liked, and in these tales he has woven a strain of pathos which is not unfitting." (Journal of Education, 1912)
