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.
