    Kalman, B 2010 A Visual Dictionary of Christmas Long Ago Crabtree Pub Katie Heupel Dewey REF 394.2663OverviewFrom FollettIncludes index Illustrations and text describe Christmas traditions of North America and throughout the world, focusing on the customs and traditions of the Victorian era, and discussing Santa Claus, Christmas trees and ornaments, traditional gifts, cards, parties, and related topics.From the Publisher This illustrated dictionary introduces readers to early celebrations of Christmas in North America and around the world Beautiful illustrations focus on Christmas customs and traditions in the Victorian era, especially those practiced by the early settlers in North America Each spread features a particular Christmas theme and explains its origin Themes include Santa Claus and his helpers Christmas trees ornaments traditional gifts and toys Christmas cards, parties, and caroling Full Text ReviewsBooklist September 1, 2011 Vol 108, No 1 Grades 3 6 The title Visual Dictionary is somewhat misleading as applied to these new additions to the Crabtree Visual Dictionaries series Rather than containing an alphabetical listing of illustrated terms, each book is organized thematically, with a different theme related to the overarching topic on each spread, and terms are introduced as part of brief narrative or descriptive passages It is helpful to note that, although not specified in the titles themselves, the books focus solely on the American experience A tendency to generalize limits the books value as history, but they do provide engaging factual tidbits The most appealing feature of the books is their rich, nostalgia tinged illustrations In A Visual Dictionary of Christmas Long Ago, they bring to life various historical and cultural visions of Santa Claus, the development of Christmas trees, and religious scenes.Captions, like the rest of the text, are generally informative but also have a tendency to overgeneralize Still, the combination of illustrations and explanation provided in these books might easily inspire readers to want to learn about particular topics The back matter includes a brief glossary and index.
