The 23-track CD will help you and your family enjoy the songs, create memories, and share the warmth and charm of this wondrous time of year. The convenient spiral binding enables the pages to lie flat when the book is open, and the songs are self-contained on one page or on facing pages to keep page-turning to a minimum. In addition, the songs are uniquely readable - when a song has more than two stanzas, a faint tint runs through each alternate line, making it easy to keep your eyes on the proper place when singing.The companion CD contains such favorites as "Jingle Bells," "Deck the Halls," and "O Holy Night." The lyric book is perfect for those who love to gather around the piano or organ and sing along.

    Great Christmas book! We got it for my wife for the piano. She loves it. It has most Christmas songs you might want except White Christmas, but then I've never scene White Christmas in any collection. They must have that copyright tied up securely and are not shating it...

    This Christmas songbook is FANTASTIC. The arrangements are wonderful and with practice make even a beginner sound like a pro. I love it and I hope Reader's Digest keeps making these type of songbooks.

    A bit disapponted. Had hoped it would be an updated version of their previous Christmas Songbook but it simply a reprint.
