Book Description
Anna's great-great-Aunt Olga is 95 and still loves Christmas. On the Saturday before the holiday she invites her young niece over for tea, gingerbread cookies, and a nostalgic look at her collection of historic Christmas postcards, which spark memories of Christmases past and of her first job writing verses for such cards. With the postcards as inspiration, the two decide to write poems for each other as Christmas gifts. It's another surprise gift, however, that will make this a Christmas that Anna will always remember. The slight story is expanded by Roberts' energetic drawings and the inclusion of dozens of postcards from the author's personal collection, which demonstrate that while the look of the season may have changed, its spirit remains the same.

Great Aunt Olga has been a collector of Christmas postcards all her life. She’s ninety-five, and many of the cards come from very long ago. The Yuletide season is the occasion to share her postcards and her Christmas memories with her favorite niece, Anna. Decked out in red, Great Aunt Olga is not averse to a little fun over tea, teaching Anna how to write her very own Christmas rhymes.
