Le generazioni passate che vivevano nelle bellissime Isole Eolie celebravano il Natale secondo
antiche tradizioni. Allora si viveva una vita semplice.
Questa e' la storia (in inglese e in italiano) di un nonno dell'epoca moderna che ricorda come era il natale quando era bambino.
Christmas in the Aeolian Islands (Natale nelle Eolie) is written in both Italian and English. The story, music and illustrations are by Diana Santamaria.

The reading age best suited is primary school. Content suits anyone from ages 2 to 100+ .
