Christmas Is A Time of Giving, Joan Walsh Anglund

Today's vintage Christmas children's book is Christmas Is A Time of Giving,
written and illustrated by Joan Walsh Anglund. This small (4" x 6") and charming book from 1961 has Anglund's pen and ink drawings and trademark children. I like the vignette type illustrations in this book, very fitting for a book of this size.
