Description

A Christmas story told with lyrical rhyme and whimsical illustration, The Christmas Garden is reminiscent of the classic The Night Before Christmas. It takes children on a garden adventure filled with Christmas trees, reindeer, elves and of course, Santa Claus. It’s a celebration of Christmas, the beauty in nature and the power of imagination.

There’s a garden across from my house that’s sublime
As it looks like it’s Christmas there all of the time.
There’s a seat on the lawn that resembles a sleigh;
It’s just waiting for reindeer to pull it away.

Now, lean over close and I’ll whisper to you
A secret that’s known, but to only a few.
A tale so amazing you may not believe
That magic takes place there on each Christmas Eve.

Enjoy this magical garden adventure.
