Christmas Book Reviews - December 4th and 5th
Here is Ms. Candice's pick for December 4th
The Lump of Coal by Lemony Snicket
This is a quirky Christmas tale about a lonely lump of coal, who dreams of being an artist. He tries to make it big in an art gallery and in a Korean restaurant, but it seems there are no Christmas miracles for this unlucky lump of coal. That is until he meets Santa Claus. Will Santa be able to give this lump of coal his true wish? Miracles can happen even to those who are small, flammable, and dressed all in black.
And here is Ms. Robin's pick for December 5th
Bear Noel by Olivier Dunrea
The animals in the forest are patiently waiting. They hear him jingling the bells and tramping through the snow! Bear Noel is coming and he is bringing Christmas with him! Dunrea’s beautiful snow covered illustrations create a magical setting for this warm story about Christmas in the forest.
