I've had this book for many years. More years, in fact, than I've had children or been married. I found it on Daedalus Books, I didn't have any Christmas song books, and I thought this would work. And it does.
I've used this book for my own benefit, playing the songs on the flute, the violin and the Irish tin whistle. I've used this book to teach recorder music to kids at the library. And this year, I've used the book to sing the songs and read the stories to my son.
I can't remember what I paid for this book -- I'm sure it was discounted -- but whatever I did pay, it was well worth it.
