A gentle poem describing the journey of a mail sleigh through rural Nova Scotia at Christmastime, delivering packages and parcels to children, Christmas with the Rural Mail is a Canadian holiday classic. The poem is carefully crafted to fit Maud Lewis's colorful paintings, and the mail sleigh passes children skiing and tobogganing, oxen and Clydesdale horses pulling heavy loads, and the train station, among other classic rural winter scenes. Lewis's artwork is ideal for babies and toddlers, with its bright colors and simple forms, and the paintings and poem together perfectly evoke Christmases gone by. This is a sturdy board book edition great for young readers.
Southwest Ohio and Nieghboring Librairies - October 31, 2011
"Woolaver's well-written poem keeps perfect cadence with the horses as they jingle through the snow. The sights and sounds along the path introduce young children to the essence of rural life. The primitive paintings of Canadian folk artist, Maud Lewis, create a colorful backdrop for this precious tale."
