I love when a Christmas story focuses on the “true meaning” of Christmas. In The Christmas Blanket, we follow a young boy, EJ, as he learns that loving those around you is more important that gifts.
I thought this story was great! My daughter enjoyed it, and it is one that we’ll read again and again each holiday season. The illustrations were beautiful and fun to look at. They are colorful and really quite stunning!
This book has a great message that I think will be great for children in their home or at the library! The story was easy to understand, and I thought the writing was good for the age range.
Where to Find This Book:
What is the meaning of Christmas? That’s what eight-year-old EJ wants to know. The other kids say it’s about getting toys‚ but is it, really? One evening, EJ’s mother takes him to the Rockefeller Center to see the lighting of the most magical tree in the world, and EJ meets someone who teaches him what Christmas is truly all about.
