My Thoughts:

What I Loved:

In today’s world of electronics, I loved that the way off Santa’s naughty list was through rekindling that family love when the screens go off.

How I Felt:

This was such a fun, cute book that the whole family can enjoy. I truly look forward to sharing this with my family this Christmas.

To Read or Not To Read:

Back to Christmas is a perfect read for any family around the holidays! It’s good for a young reader that has mastered middle-grade fiction as well.

What’s This Book About Anyway?

Amanda and her family are like many other families, absorbed with their electronics. They have found themselves on the Naughty list and Santa’s elf in charge of the Naughty and Nice list wants to keep them there. To get back into Santa’s good graces, they must find out how to be a family again. There are many lovable and memorable characters along the way to help them, if they want it.


I was provided a gifted copy of this book. I am leaving my honest, unbiased review voluntarily.

A Perfect Tree by Denise Dunham

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book is a sweet story of a young girl whose family moves into an extremely small house, what she calls a dollhouse. There is not space for many beds and her parents sleep on a pull-out sofa bed. Their kitchen cannot hold a table, so the table they use collapses when they are not eating.

Christmas is coming soon and she wants a Christmas tree, but her parents tell her that she cannot have one. The house is too small. She is sad and prays about it. Asking for God to provide a tree.

Then, a truck carrying Christmas tree drives by their home and a tree falls out. The driver offers to give the tree to the family, and it is just the right size to fit on a table in their home.

One Wild Christmas by Nicholas Oldland


This book just released on Sept 3, 2019 and is a great addition to any child’s holiday bookshelf. Beaver, Moose, and Bear are preparing for their Christmas, but realize they have forgotten to get a tree! They head out to find one in the forest and after many trees that were not good enough, they come across the perfect tree. Beaver and Moose are ready to take down the tree, but Bear doesn’t want to ruin the it. The three friends fight, and it seems that Christmas will be ruined. Bear gets an idea that could save Christmas, but can he pull it off?
Both of my children loved this book. The illustrations were colorful and fun, and the story was very cute! We would have loved to see a little more of the celebration at the end, but it was very well-written and we would definitely add this to our Holiday Collection!
