This multilevel penmanship book with its richly colored, lavish illustrations focused on the story of Jesus’ birth is a delightful way for kids to practice their handwriting while focusing on Christmas.
We created this book as a way to draw the family together during the Christmas season. Our kids loved to make Christmas last, from the first of December to the new year.
Why not combine Christmas celebration and handwriting practice as your kids learn the words to multiple verses of favorite Christmas carols by tracing or copying them in printing and cursive?
For each of 14 Christmas carols, we provide each verse of each carol in dotted manuscript printing and dotted cursive, plus the same verse in solid print and cursive for kids to copy using the 10 decorated lined pages, in 7line sizes, at the back of the book. Includes 2 bonus carols in solid print and cursive for copying only. We also include coloring pages depicting scenes from the story of the birth of Jesus, as well as pictures to color of families celebrating Christmas around the world.
You are allowed to print out the pages for all family members in your same household year after year. We suggest putting the finished carol pages in a notebook and using it to sing the Christmas carols, either just as a family or with guests. Let this book be a jump off point to instill in your children a love for singing and a special place in your family schedule for singing Christmas carols every year at Christmas time. You can also purchase our Christmas music CD, Christmas Carols, Sweet and Clear, which includes 10 of the carols that are in this book, for your children to listen to while they do the handwriting practice on these pages, or to provide the accompaniment as they sing along with it.
This book is for those of us who still love the old Christmas carols, with their focus on Jesus’ nativity story, and want to pass them on to our children and make them a part of our Christmas traditions.
This book is a combination of beautifully illustrated Christmas carols, with all their rich verses, plus coloring pictures to go with each carol. Plus the card shaped color pictures can be decorated and embellished with shiny star stickers, shimmer paint, glitter glue, and other embellishments (as shown in our Christmas card-making book, only these are all on the subject of the nativity story. We also give you a set of 10 decorated copy-work pages in 7 different line sizes.
These Christ-centered carols in a gentle style with classical style accompaniment make a restful but inspirational background for relaxation amidst the Christmas rush.
Give your homeschool a holiday touch with Christmas music in the background during schooltime or as a sing-along with your children. Use this CD with our Christmas penmanship book, A Treasury of Christmas Carols to Trace and Color, to teach your children the carols you love and to draw your family together during the holiday season.
Joymarie’s trained voice is soothing, rich, and sweet, and is accompanied by James’s and Joshua’s gentle but exhilarating classical-style harmonies on harp, recorder, flute, oboe, and strings, in a style reminiscent of Baroque composers.
James sings baritone harmonies in some of the songs, and the children also sing several of the songs with Joymarie. Our music is very relaxing, yet intricate enough to keep revealing new musical secrets each time you listen to it.

I really like your music! It’s so beautiful and subdued…I hope you and your family will continue to create beautiful music.
I have been very blessed to discover *Christmas Carols Sweet and Clear by the Dunlap family…. Their voices are fresh and inspiring and the songs they have chosen are among some of the most God-honoring out there. This is a great addition to any family’s music collection.
