Tomie dePaola's Book of Christmas Carols (Tomie dePaola’s Treasuries) (Hardcover)
Christmas is a time for warm family gatherings, the sharing of gifts and festive meals, and everywhere, there is music! Carols with familiar melodies and lyrics telling stories of events from long ago have delighted young and old for generations.
This intricately illustrated collection of Tomie’s favorite Christmas carols, first published in 1987, highlights dePaola’s love of Christmas and its traditions and is the perfect family gift to celebrate the holiday. Vibrant, glowing paintings illuminate every page of sheet music, and for six of the carols, a foldout page opens up to reveal the carol dramatically illustrated across three pages in a triptych-like design.
