We are dedicating this Christmas audio book to the brave men and women of the American military and in their honor we have included poems that were written in wartime: "Christmas Bells," "Wartime Christmas," and "Noel: Christmas Eve 1913," and a story about the Battle of Trenton "Christmas Day: 1776". A portion of each unit sold will be donated to the USO.
The Gift of the Magi," Little Tree," "The Little Match Girl" and an excerpt from "A Christmas Carol," are featured. You will also find "The Owl and the Pussycat," "Christmas at Red Butte," "Is There a Santa Claus?" (Yes, Virginia…) and " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas."
All in all, over an hour of rich family entertainment is waiting for you. So on a cold winter's night, get all comfy by the fire and settle back with a cup of hot chocolate. Relax, and experience the holiday with a laugh, a chuckle and maybe a tear or two. When you re-discover these classics, you may find that you rediscover your soul.

… reads 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
“I know this was a labor of love…my favorite piece was 'The Gift of the Magi.' It was read so brilliantly and with so much heart.”
Hope Levy, actor and founder of VAN, Voice Actors Network.
This is a perfect collection of words lovingly wrapped in the sensitive, expressive lilt of a voice lit from beneath by music. Jennifer has gifted us with a new perennial, laced with a temptation: to set apart her CD within its jewel case and make the loving reminders within accessible to us when the rest of the holiday season is boxed and closeted and we need a pick-me-up. I, for one, gleefully plan on succumbing to it.

I totally love this audio book. All the stories are read with excellence and I am amazed by them all. However, track 12 "Yes, Virginia…" is my favorite.
