AUNT OLGA'S CHRISTMAS POSTCARDS

Authors: Kevin Major and Bruce Roberts

Anna’s great-aunt Olga has collected Christmas postcards all her life. She’s ninety-five, and many of the cards are very old. The holidays are the perfect time for Aunt Olga to share her postcards and her memories with her favorite niece. Decked out in red, Aunt Olga is ready for fun as she teaches Anna how to write her very own Christmas rhymes. Written with warmth and humor, this lovely story is a perfect starting point for discussions of the "olden days", as well as a charming introduction to the joys of collecting.

From Publishers Weekly
Young Anna finds that nothing goes better with tea and gingerbread cookies than nonagenarian Aunt Olga's tales of being a poet - and professional postcard-greeting writer - long ago. Readers may well agree as they peruse the stellar collection of vintage holiday postcards and spirited verses that decorate these pages. Though Major's (The House of Wooden Santas ) story meanders too much, the nostalgic tone and sweet intergenerational theme will win fans. Roberts's breezy pen-and-ink and watercolor-wash spot art makes an attractive contrast to the antique images. Ages 4-up.
