My folks bought both the World Book Encyclopedias as well as the Childcraft set (mid-70's), and many annuals. Now that I have a child of my own, I will not only pass on my treasured set of much-read books (my favorite was "Holidays and Customs," and the annual "The Indian Book"), but I'm thinking about buying him his own set! These books taught me so much, and I'm grateful that my parents made such an investment.

It's been 50 years since my mother bought my the best gift she ever could have given me -- Childcraft! These books were a window to the world, taking me to other places and other times, introducing me to the people who changed the world, and explaining how it all worked.

The impact of those books on my life has been immeasurable. I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, and an unflagging desire to see the world and all that's in it.

Childcraft gave me a platform on which to build a life that is far fuller than it could have been otherwise. To this day, I remember things I learned from those books, and throughout my education, they gave me an advantage. I will be grateful forever for these books and how they prepared me to learn forever.

I just inherited 32 of Christmas Around the World books and ornaments. Some ornaments are obvious which books they go to but most are not. Does anyone have a list or can supply the Country with a short description of the ornament that came with it? Help!

:lol: Ohhh my goshhhh. I have been looking for the christmas around the world books with the ornament and advent calendars everywhere. when we were kids, we looked forward to those books coming in so we could hang the ornament and put the advent calendar on the fridge. my brother and I would take turnes opening them up each day until christmas. mama would sometimes cook things from the books around the world. I just ordered my very first book which is the Christmas 1700 and 1800's volumn 1. I can't wait to order these until I have all of them. Now I can continue the tradition in my home. Yeaaaaaaa!!!
