The Christmas Village

I want to introduce you to a book that is sure to be holiday pleaser!! I do not find many chapter books with the Christmas theme so I was pleased when I was sent this book. Melissa Ann Goodwin's The Christmas Village is a book I know our younger readers will enjoy! It is the story of Jamie Reynolds - a boy going through a tough time at home with his family - but when he goes to his Grandma's house for the holidays, he is transported to a new world through the little Christmas Village set up in his grandparent's home. I loved this - it is well-written and keeps you reading to find out what will happen. Life isn't always "wonderful" but I love how this author uses stories to transport the reader to another world and show how sometimes that can be therapy for us all!!

*I was sent a copy for review purposes.
