Anna's great-aunt Olga has collected Christmas postcards all her life. She's ninety-five, and many of the cards are very old. The holidays are the perfect time for Aunt Olga to share her postcards and her memories with her favorite niece. Decked out in red, Aunt Olga is ready for fun as she teaches Anna how to write her very own Christmas rhymes. Written with warmth and humor, this lovely story is a perfect starting point for discussions of the "olden days", as well as a charming introduction to the joys of collecting.

When Anna receives an invitation to her Great Aunt Olga''s house for cookie baking, she can''t resist accepting. And even though the old gal is fussy and has a mind of her own, Anna knows she will be in for a treat. For Aunt Olga has the most marvelous collection of vintage Christmas postcards that you can imagine! Soon they are munching on cookies and making up stories and poems about each card. Truly a wonderful story about a cross generational relationship that is as heart warming and considerate as every Christmas encounter should be that can be shared with everyone. A visit to old Aunt Olga is the perfect way to get ready for Christmas!
