Great Christmas book
Pro's: I liked that this book talks about all the fun Christmas traditions and gives the message at the end that all these things are great, but they aren't why we have Christmas. There are a few pages with a good message telling about Christmas being the celebration of Christ's birth.
Con's: I found some of the writing and rhymes awkward and corny. The illustrations are also a little on the boring side. Not very colorful or exciting to look at. The book doesn't actually tell the Christmas story, just tells you that Christmas is about Christ.
So, overall, I thought this was a good Christmas book with a nice message, but it's not as great as the other rave reviews claim it to be.
I love that it addresses the other traditions but also clarifies the real reason for Christmas. If you happen to be opposed to any secularization, than this book probably won't be for you or your kids, but I personally like the rhymes, the pictures, and the point.
