Celebrate the Holiday's with Running Press

Every year on December 1st I pull out everything we need to countdown the days till Christmas. Among those things are a collection of books that I read to my daughter to fill her mind and heart with Holiday cheer as we remember why we celebrate. I have several books about the birth of Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas as well as fun Christmas children stories about Santa and reindeer's and of course classics like The Night Before Christmas and A Christmas Carol.

This year I was sent two new books to add to our collection; A Treasury of Christmas Classics and Steampunk: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

A Treasury of Christmas Classics includes three time-honored stories; The Nutcracker, The Twelve Days of Christmas and The Night Before Christmas. This hardcover book is filled with whimsical illustrations that accompany the original stories. My daughter found it on my desk and has already started reading it early. This would make a lovely gift that will be treasured for many years.

Steampunk: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is the original story containing Steampunk inspired illustrations. Complete with steam powered machinery, a chilling industrial London and ornate mechanical gears. This book also contains two of Charles' Dickens short stories; The Story of the Goblin who Stole a Sexton and A Christmas Tree. This is my favorite of the two books. I love the artwork and the additional stories that I had never before read. Do you know someone who is into the whole Steampunk genre? This would make a nice Christmas book to add to their bookcase.

You can get these Running Press titles wherever books are sold.
