PLAY A SONG OF CHRISTMAS by Ruth Zimmerman Theodore Presser Company
* Very affordable music, 21 pages paperback. 36 Christmas song, however, I have used some for church programs that were not Christmas. The only drawback is there are many written in flats. Therefore
it is a bit more difficult for the very young ones. One really nice feature is this is available for ALL instruments. I have included clarinet and others before. Violin parts are A and B all first position.

THE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION by Robert Dupre Pro Art publications

CHRISTMAS KALEIDOSCOPE Books 1 and 2 by Robert Frost Neil Kjos Music Company
* Book 1 is easy to intermediate but I use for all levels, Book 2 has harder keys in it but not too difficult. A piano accompaniment can be purchased and also parts for other string instruments(also in 3 part). The book has a sturdy cover and can be used for years. I use this book a lot.
