Sharing the Joy - Christmas Tales: The Night Before Christmas and 21 Other Christmas Stories - Review

My thoughts
What a wonderful collection to read at Christmastime! Fairy Tales are always a favorite of mine, and reading them at Christmas, especially those with a Christmas theme, is a very nostalgic experience. 

I was thrilled to find in this collection favorites like The Little Match Girl and The Nutcracker. Each story tells which country it originates from, which is a wonderful touch and fits in well with my Christmas Around the World theme on this blog. A nice surprise was to find The Elves and the Shoemaker. I remembered that it was a favorite of mine when I was a child. I have not read it since then and it brought back memories.

What you don't often find in an eBook are gorgeous illustrations. This book has them. They really added to the atmosphere of the collection. 

If I had one slightly negative thing to say, it would be that the book could use some minor editing, as there are some typos and grammatical errors here and there. Honestly though, it did not detract from the beauty of the stories.

I highly recommend this collection. I look forward to checking out their website for more fairy tales!
