Corgiville Christmas
By Tasha Tudor
Illustrator Tasha Tudor
Publisher Front Street

Tasha Tudor takes the reader back to what life was like in 1920's Connecticutt where she grew up. The mythical town of Corgiville is inhabited by Welsh corgis, rabbits, cats, mice and chickens. In Corgiville Christmas, we discover how the residents of Corgiville celebrate Christmas. We learn how the Bigbee Browns create an Advent wreath from boxwood greens and serve Dundee Cake on December sixth. All the Christmastime activities culminate with a trip to the Christmas Woods, a full day's outing in goat pulled sleighs. The Christmas tree brought back from this trip is decorated with lighted candles and shining ornaments for the whole community to enjoy.

Tudor's slightly fuzzy illustrations lend themselves to this telling of Christmas traditions past. The book leaves you with the feeling that we've lost something important, a sense of community and an enjoyment of simple pleasures. It may inspire you to start your own simple Christmas traditions.
