Overview Words and watercolors present children, friendly animals, and helpful adults engaged in holiday adventures and enjoyments, from May Day to Easter
Publishers Description There were homemade valentines and Easter eggs, Fourth of July picnics and family birthdays. Thanksgiving brought visits from relatives -- so many, the children had to sleep in the barn And finally there was Christmas, the best of all "times to keep," with handmade presents, an Advent calendar, and a "beautiful tree in a shine of candles." Month by month, Tasha Tudor's delicate illustrations bring to life the holidays of an earlier time. A warm-hearted celebration of family and tradition, this treasury of "times to keep" will be cherished and enjoyed all year long.

Beautiful, delightful book! Aug 3, 2007
This is a treasure of a book... both for the eyes and the ears. Tasha Tudor's detailed paintings infuse life into her words, and draw the reader into the delightful ways to relish each month.
Tasha Tudor at her best Apr 10, 2007
This is my favorite of all her books, bar none! It tells of their unique family celebrations throughout the year. Written and illustrated by Tasha, children of all ages will wish to join right in!
Not the same Jan 14, 2007
I thought this favorite from my childhood would be great for our girls. But the illustrations are not the same at all. They are fuzzy, oddly colored and lacking in those sharp details I loved. How could I get the 1972 edition?
Nice general holiday book Sep 20, 2005
Nice book, with wonderful illustrations. Evokes old-world charm and return to core idea of family in holiday spirit. Very charming.
Holiday joy Jul 8, 2005
The charming drawings, accounts of Tasha Tudor's family fun on holidays, and its sweet and peaceful themes make this one of Tasha's finest books. A book to delight all ages.
