This is the sweetest story of all time.
From the first time I listened to the album to this movie I was hooked.

It was a read/sing along album with the story and illustrations inside when you open the cover. The story is sweet and endearing. I cannot believe there is not more information available about this movie.

If there were more stories like this for our children to grow up on, they would still be innocent like we were back then. Growing up I listened to the story everyday. I can still recite it all the lines along with movie.

It was not just for Christmas in my eyes. A must see for every child and adult.
