Format: Hardcover
This is story about two children who do not have the patience to wait until Christmas to open their gifts. Right there you start smiling because this is something to which we all can relate. Most adults (including yours truly) cannot wait to flop down our hard-earned money when a new toy/gadgets debuts. Seen the lines for the newest iPhone, iPad, or XBOX 360? Yeah, so how we expect our children to sit like good little people of society when we ask them what they want, buy them what they want, and then tease them by wrapping it and putting it under a pretty tree with FLASHING lights, and then telling them "hands off". Oh, the horror! I know, I know, I know but you know what I mean.

One of the things that made me smile with this book was seeing just how far Mike and Pat, the children, would go. It seems that a story that illustrates a part of our childhood and maybe what we are going through with our own kids is the best kind of story.

This book is amazing!! It's a great lesson for my children, not just for Christmas time, but for learning that it's important to wait for things and to be patient. There are many places in my children's lives where I can apply the lessons they learn in this book. Additionally, the pictures are very nice. I definitely recommend this book for anyone with kids this Christmas or any time of the year.

The story itself is kind of bland, there aren't really any twists or turns to it. Basically the children sneak and open their presents early because they can't wait for Christmas and then try to hide the fact they did it from their parents. In the end they feel awful for doing it and get caught by their parents when all of their gifts have obviously been used before. I think the moral of the story is great and it's good for teaching a lesson, but it could have been done slightly better.

Great book! Written in a fun style, with great illustrations. Mike Huckabee is fun to read, with great values presented in a captivating way. This children's book has just the right amount of pages to get the point across and still keep the child's interest right up to the punchline. A great addition to your Christmas collection.

First of all, let me say that I really love the cute illustrations of the book.
Then, I would like to add, besides celebrating how rewarding the virtue of patience can be, this short Christmas story stresses the importance of Character. In his book "Do the Right Thing" at page 30 Mike Huckabee says "Character has been defined as "what we are when no one but God is watching." Character is believing that even if I don't "get caught", the rightness or wrongness of an action is more about the action itself and not just the discovery of it by others." So, the kids Mike and Pat learn what Character is about, when they understand their sort of cheating was wrong, not because they were discovered by their parents, but because they slowly perceive that what they did makes them feel bad. In fact, when you cheat, whatever the cheating is about, the first person you damage is yourself, and those who refrain from cheating are the ones who have better lives thanks to their Character. I believe this is the main lesson we can take from this short tale, which can be an important reminder that behaving according to acceptable moral codes, based on the respect of others, starting from our childhood, is essential in order to have a society founded on reciprocal trust, where it is possible for us to build a solid future.

This was a true story that reminded me of growing up and sneaking in the middle of the night to see what Santa had brought. Trouble was in my case, Santa knew and didn't give me the present that I had opened. Mike Huckabee was lucky he got his football.
