One of the most well known holiday songs of all time, Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" depicts the dream of a perfect Christmas—one filled with snow. And in the hands of fantasy artist Michael Hague, it's also filled with snow fairies, reindeer, woodland creatures, sleigh rides, Santa Claus, and more. As you turn the pages and read the lyrics, you'll be swept away into a magical Christmas fairyland that is sure to make your holiday merry and bright.

The classic Yuletide ballad that has been spreading Christmas spirit since the 1940s is made new again in this enchanting holiday picture book with illustrations as fresh and beautiful as a winter snowfall.
