The Magic of Christmas!

Christmas is my favorite holiday .  This magical holiday brings joy to my heart, and this year I am especially happy to have read two great books about the true meaning of Christmas.  See my reviews below! Happy holidays to all!


A Christmas Kindness, by author C.C. Gevry, brought tears to my eyes. This story touched me in so many ways because it is a story that chronicles what Christmas is all about.

Unfortunately, current culture has turned Christmas into a money making machine, but A Christmas Kindness will remind the reader that Christmas is more about giving than receiving.

Eight-year-old Robert arrives in the mall with his mom to tell Santa what’s on his list, but have a life changing experience when he meets a boy named Glenn.

Robert’s change of heart and actions demonstrate that a child is capable of making decisions that will make his/her parents very proud.  It brings to mind that children often model what they learn from an adult, and we should be careful with our actions.

Caroline Mahey’s vivid illustrations help bring the characters to life.   A Christmas Kindness will make a great stocking stuffer.   This delightful story can be a great resource when teaching young children about the true meaning of Christmas.   It should be a part of every school and church library.

Little Shepherd written by author Cheryl C. Malandrinos is a great retelling of Luke 2:8-16. Five-year-old Obed has the honor of hearing about the Savior’s birth.  The Angels came with the outstanding message to send the shepherds to see the newborn baby, but Obed is having second thoughts because he does not want to abandon his sheep. 

This well written story is a must read in all homes as it can teach young children about responsibility and obedience.

I love the underlying message that one always benefits when you trust God.   Through trust and obedience Obed was able to experience first-hand how God can bring about miracles even in difficult situations.

This delightful book will be a great addition to any church library.

Book Review, Dee and Deb Off They Go : Kindergarten First Day Jitters by Donna M. McDine



I love quality books that teach children about every day life. Multi-award-winning author, Donna M. McDine has done a great job with her newest release, Dee and Deb Off They Go : Kindergarten First Day Jitters.

My Review:



Dee and Deb Off They Go Kindergarten First Day Jitters by Donna M. McDine tells the perfect story of twin sisters and the anxiety they experience going off to school for the first time.

Dee and Deb are not alone when it comes to feeling overwhelmed when separating from a sibling who is your best friend and playmate. This charming story will help young children understand that going off to school can be a fun experience. Dee comes to realize she can make friends and all is well even without her sister Deb.

This book is a must read in all kindergarten classrooms. The teacher can use the book to help defuse anxiety about being away from home and siblings for the first time.

Jack Foster’s lovely illustrations complement the story, helping to bring the characters to life for the reader.
