On a New England farm in 1910, when gifts were mostly handmade and the night sky featured a million stars, Lucy Wells and her family celebrate a snow-covered Christmas.

Donald Hall is the current United States Poet Laureate and the author of String Too Short to Be Saved: Recollections of Summers on a New England Farm, also from Godine.From Publishers Weekly:
Hall (Ox-Cart Man) and McCurdy (An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving) serve up a New England Christmas at the turn of the century-complete with hand-crafted presents, horse-drawn sleighs and a rousing community church service. Young Lucy takes great care preparing thoughtful gifts for her family, but even more anticipation surrounds the new Glenwood Kitchen Range that Lucy's parent's have ordered from the Sears Roebuck catalogue. Hall's generously descriptive text is infused with nostalgia and warmth (an author's note explains his personal connection to the characters). McCurdy's colored scratchboard drawings brim with rustic detail and are particularly fluid and expressive for artwork in this medium. Ages 5-8.
