This version of the Oliver the Ornament came in a wonderful gift box with a special Oliver ornament! It was such an exciting surprise, and the kids were so excited to open the gift box and see the ornament and book!
This was a lovely story about the origin of ornaments as well as one family’s journey from the beginning of their family formation. I especially loved the story’s focus on the value of older things and that something isn’t worthless because it’s not new. Having the ornament hang on our tree is a great reminder to our children of the message in this story!
I really enjoyed this story. It is very touching, and I even teared up at one point! The kids really loved listening to the story, and I know that reading this book will become part of our Christmas traditions!
This was an appropriate story for children in preschool through middle elementary. The story has easy to grasp concepts and some that will impact children a bit older. I like this because it will continue to bring new messages to children year after year!
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend Oliver the Ornament for any child. The gift box is an especially nice present for a family with an ornament for the child!
