    This little book is a great collection of Christmas-themed Peanuts comics from the 1950s-1990s. There isn't a lot of text other than a few pages with descriptions of different characters. Mostly it's just a comic per page and a quick, enjoyable read. If you love Peanuts, it's a must-read. (And is it just me, or were the '50s characters even cuter than the more recent ones?)

    The book “The Joy of a Peanuts Christmas: 50 Years of Holiday Comics!” by Charles M. Schulz, Don Hall, is a children’s picture book. This book is intended for ages 4 through 8.

I rated this book 3 stars because I personally do not read comic strips as much, which is why I wanted to try it this semester, but I still prefer other formats. I think it is an enjoyable book for children around the holidays, as it gets them excited for this time of the year. It can definitely make children laugh and smile reading through the comic strips. I also like the various Christmas colors used and all the illustrated decorations to make it feel more Christmas themed. We also get a good sense of these characters personality throughout the comic strips from their quotes. It also includes the comic strips over the years, which is really interesting to see all the different kinds over the years. It is a great Christmas read.

    The Peanuts comics are great in this, but I don’t really love the layout that Hallmark created. There’s some various colored and patterned backgrounds that are sort of distracting, and I don’t really need an introduction to each of the characters - don’t we know who they are by now? I like having a collection of Christmas comics over the years though. I also would have preferred another comic artist doing the introduction to this book, or maybe a member of the Schulz family or no intro at all.

    Who doesn't love Charlie Brown at Christmas? From the first snowfall through the January letdown, these comics will bring out the season. Organized by decade it's not only a journey through a Peanuts Christmas but also serves as a brief history of the Peanuts gang. Delightful to read in one sitting or dip into.

    This is a collection of Christmas theme Peanuts strips in the span of 5 decades from the 50's to the 90's. In the book, there are introductions of the characters in the comic and their memorable quotes. I love that bit because it's some kind of confirmation of their personalities, something that we already know all along.

    The comics are magical, and it is fun to see the 1964 strips that provided the basis for "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Pages with descriptions of the characters' personalities are pleasant, but unnecessary. The introduction makes it clear that this book is a promotion for a greeting card company.

    I've always enjoyed Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. I enjoyed reading about how Schultz and Hallmark joined forces and promoted Peanuts. Many great Christmas cartoon strips in this book as well as character descriptions! I've always enjoyed Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang.

    How can a book revolving around a Peanuts Christmas be given anything but 5 stars? Enough said. Grab a cup of hot chocolate, a quilt, a comfy couch, and just enjoy the wisdom of the Peanuts gang.

    I hadn’t seen most of the 80s and 90s ones before. Literal lol for the one that ran 11/21/1990, a letter to Santa gag. Perfect gift book.
