Blackstone Audio presents another of its popular collections of childhood classics read by celebrity narrators. This time all the stories are centered around Christmas. Included are: “The Little Match Girl” read by Robby Benson, “Waldo, Tell Me about Christmas” read by Ralph Waite, “Santasaurus” read by Jonathan Winters, “The History of Christmas” read by Jack Lemmon, “The Gift of the Magi” read by Robby Benson, and “Miracle on 34th Street” read by Carl Reiner.
A true classic, and a search for America's soul, is given the reading of a lifetime by one of America's finest actors: two-time Academy Award-winner Jack Lemmon. Floating on a raft down the Mississippi with Jim, an escaping slave, Lemmon's Huck finds adventure, danger, and a cast of characters who are both menacing and hilarious.

A grandfather tells the story of Jesus' birth and how he found his star in The History of Christmas; a charming metaphor on the discovery of self-worth and the following of one's destiny. The Smallest Mouse in Town convinces himself that he is a giant and in the end proves that the most important thing is to be who you are no matter what. After all, liking yourself is one of life's most important lessons.
