Welcome again to Lil' Vintage Story Books, where we share our favorite vintage children's books!
I actually don't have very many vintage Christmas books, but I wanted to keep with the season, so this week I chose "The Golden Christmas Tree", written by Jan Wahl and illustrated by Leonard Weisgard.
It's actually pretty new by "vintage" standards, published in 1988, but I guess that was almost 25 years ago, so it's still quite old (I can't believe that! I graduated in 1990!).
It's just the sweetest story about how the jungle animals celebrate Christmas. It's got such a quiet, peaceful tone and beautiful illustrations.
I just love the tiger stringing the berries- can you see him squinting one eye to see better?
Of course the giraffe puts on the star!
I really can imagine that this is the way jungle animals would celebrate- just very quietly and peacefully.
No mention of presents or gifts, just the joy of being together and celebrating!
