Two Children's Christmas Stories

Two Children's Christmas Stories
Hello everyone,
Today I'll be reviewing two children's Christmas stories that I've recently read and thought they were both adorable. Full disclosure, I received both of these books via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in these reviews are my own. I've actually read both of these with my toddler and we both enjoyed them very much. 


One Wild Christmas

by Nicholas Oldland



Beaver, Moose and Bear are almost all ready for Christmas. They just forgot about one little thing.. The Christmas Tree! Since a Christmas Tree is the most important decoration, our lovable trio must go out and find one at once. After finding trees that simply won't do, they finally find the perfect tree. The only problem is bear thinks this tree is perfect exactly where it is, in the forest. Now the friends have to figure out what they can possibly do to have such a perfect tree as their very own.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this book. It was absolutely adorable and so much fun to read. The story is silly and sweet and just a wonderful little Christmas tale. I loved the way the three friends worked together to make Christmas perfect and how Bear stood up for his beliefs about the perfect tree. The pictures are colorful, fun and a joy to look at. It's simply wonderful in every way.

Why I'm recommending this one:
It's fun! It was a silly little Christmas story that brought my daughter and I joy while we read it and I think other families would enjoy it just as much as we did.


The Worst Christmas Ever

By Kathleen Long Bostrom


Matthew's family has moved to California. As if that isn't bad enough there's no snow there and his dog disappears right before Christmas. His little sister Lucy believes she can find the Christmas miracle Matthew says doesn't exist. Is Matthew right, or will Lucy find the Christmas Miracle and give everyone a Merry Christmas after all.

I've read this to my daughter twice so far and we both really enjoyed it. The story is so cute. While Christianity is a theme in this book it isn't shoved in your face making it enjoyable to everyone. The characters are fun and sweet. It's enjoyable in every way. I would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a new Christmas story to share.

Why I'm recommending this one:
It's sweet! This story is a little sad with a happy ending. At first little Matthew is upset over trivial things such as snow, but when his beloved dog goes missing he realizes what is truly important for him to have a Merry Christmas. It's a wonderful story to help teach little ones about true values.

Well, that's all for today friends. Thanks for reading!!

See you on the moon!!
