About the Author
A Crystal Bowman le gusta escribir relatos y poemas. Cuando tenÃa diez aÃ±os, su libro favorito era una colecciÃ³n de poemas divertidos que todavÃa conserva. AdemÃ¡s 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.

This colorful, rhyming board book opens with a young boy and girl rushing to the tree on Christmas morning, eager to open the presents laying beneath it. But, the author asks, What is Christmas really about? Why do we give each other presents?
Bowman then briefly explains the Christmas story, beginning with angels singing about Christ the Savior. Because God loved us so much, she explains, he gave us his son Jesus, and the true gift of Christmas is that if we believe in and love him, we'll receive eternal life. That means we'll go to heaven, where there is no sadness or troubles. The book ends:
"It's fun to find presents under the tree
and give Christmas gifts to your family.
But the very best gift comes from above -
It's Jesus the Savior, wrapped in God's love."
What I Like:: This is a super succinct, toddler and preschool friendly explanation of what Christmas is about and how Jesus changes our lives. The illustrations by Claudine Gevry are big and colorful, without being gaudy. Depicting familiar Christmas scenes as well as biblical ones, the illustrations are sure to capture young childrens' attention.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Very Good.
Managing Editor, Christian Children's Book Review
All in all, a nice short and fun book explaining the "reason for the season".
More than anything, though, the message is beautiful: we celebrate Christmas with gifts and trees but the reason for Christmas is Jesus, our Savior.
This book will be a very important part of our Christmas traditions for years to come.

12-page book. Cute book for Christmas. Much larger than expected - about 11 inches tall. Story also starts off with a boy and girl getting gifts under the tree, but quickly shifts... Read morePublished 14 months ago by ScotFlower
Love this and other Christmas books by author. The books tie in cultural traditions with Christian traditions to show the links between the two. Well constructed and fun to read.Published on January 11, 2014 by bkstby
