About the Author

Crystal Bowman loves writing books for kids. Her books come in all shapes and sizes and many of them have become best sellers. Whether her stories are written in playful rhythm and rhyme, or short sentences for beginning readers, she tries to make them so enjoyable that kids will want to read them over and over again. 'But the most important part,' she says, 'is to teach children that God loves them and cares about them very much.' SPANISH BIO: A Crystal Bowman le gusta escribir relatos y poemas. Cuando tenia diez anos, su libro favorito era una coleccion de poemas divertidos que todavia conserva. Ademas de escribir relatos, poemas y rimas, Crystal disfruta pasando tiempo con su esposo y sus hijos ya crecidos, dando largas caminatas y comiendo helados. Ellos dividen su tiempo entre Michigan y Florida.

You can find Claudine diving the oceans with Technicolor fish, camel riding in the Sahara, trekking in a jungle populated with wild monkeys, or exploring the African savanna in search of huge elephants. Although adventurous, she sometimes gets scared when coming upon a giant spider or other scary beasts. At that time she heads back to the comfort of her studio, where she draws all the wonderful things she saw and dreams of her next visit to faraway lands.

Format: Board book
I was so excited to find this book! It wonderfully weaves together the stocking tradition of Saint Nicholas with the true meaning of Christmas. The author explains gift-giving as a way of sharing God's love, just as the best and first gift--Jesus!--was His ultimate expression of love for us. It's a well-written book, with naturally-flowing rhymes and a simple but beautiful message.

This is a great story to teach little ones about St. Nicholas & why we give gifts on Christmas. My toddler & preschooler love the illustrations & rhyming text. I love the message they are getting about giving gifts to show god's love for one another.

The holiday season is coming and not soon enough for me! Every year I love to add new Christmas books to our collection, especially those that are about the true meaning of Christmas.

My Christmas Stocking is a great addition to our collection! I like to have different books for all three of my kids since they are so far apart in age. The older two are six and seven but my youngest is just one so this board book is great for him. I like board books because little hands can turn the pages easily and without tearing them.

This book is shaped like a stocking which just makes it extra cute. The words are lyrical and rhyming which is great for toddlers. It helps them to pay attention and even remember the words and start to recite them before they can read.

This tells the story of the real Saint Nicholas and how the Christmas tradition of the stocking came to me. It also talks about the real meaning of Christmas and God's love. I like the balance of both. We are Christians and celebrate Jesus's birth but we also like to enjoy the fun of Santa. This does a great job of balancing two traditions.

The illustrations are just as magical as the words and compliment them perfectly. Since Jax is so young he is really drawn to the pictures and likes to point things out in them.

I have a Christmas tradition of wrapping up 24 Christmas books and having them take turns opening one every night and reading them a Christmas story before bed. They will be delighted that My Christmas Stocking is now a part of that!

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
