A TREASURY OF OLD-FASHIONED CHRISTMAS STORIES
Dr. Wheeler has dedicated a lifetime to tracking down elusive Christmas stories. From several thousand, he has chosen those that, for generation after generation, have continued to be most loved and cherished. Powerful and emotive, they are timeless in their ability to help us experience the joy, wonder, and true meaning of Christmas. Their message of unselfish love and personal involvement turns our thoughts to Christ, and reminds us every time we read them, that this is really what Christmas–and life itself–is all about.
It is Dr. Wheeler’s sincere wish that these stories will become your friends too, to be read and reread as you and your loved ones make them an integral part of your own Christmas traditions and memories.
Stories in this book include: Christmas Is for Families, A String of Blue Beads, The Red Mittens, The Promise of the Doll, plus 11 more. To add to your Christmas enjoyment, selected stories from this book are available on cassette, read by Dr. Wheeler.
Some of the fondest memories of my childhood are tied to hearing my mother read Christmas stories to our family. Not one of them was just a Christmas story; each had the ability to make us laugh or cry, to tug at our heartstrings, to remind us that only a Christ-filled Christmas had any meaning at all.–Joe L. Wheeler.
