| Wonderful!!!
This collection of six tales of the Christmas season is a jewel. Each story is told with beautifully animated illustrations. Artists such as R.O. Blechman, Jame McMullen, Seymour Chwast and others give each tale a unique look and feel. The stories themselves are imaginative. The viewer travels the world and travels through time to Russia, World War l, the Manger. I do not understand why PBS has never made Simple Gifts available on Video or DVD. At the very least, perhaps they might broadcast it again. I think if this "Gift" was seen on a regular basis at the Holiday season, it would quickly become a Christmas classic. Appropriate and enjoyable for adults and children.
