Since Christmas was just a few days ago, I have to share one of my favorite Christmas books. Sadly, I don’t yet own it, but I check it out from the public library every year.
I tell myself that I need to buy it every year, and never do. At least the library has my back. 🙂
On to the review. This book pulls at the heart-strings and makes you see the miraculous ways God and life can work. Since my oldest was too young to understand it, I have sat there and become sucked in to the story as if I were sitting there with the characters myself. Even now that I have read it so many times that I know how it goes, I still find myself tearing up.
The power of love and of taking a moment to reach out and talk to those around you is so powerful.
My oldest is now old enough to understand the story, and he enjoys it as well, but parents, if you want a story that you can enjoy reading out loud every Christmas, this one is it. The illustrations will keep your children’s attention while you can get sucked in and read a beautiful, well-written picture book.
