The Story of Christmas is like a little gift from heaven because it is an accurately portrayed story of the birth of Jesus. This book is everything that Christmas is to me, so when I received this gem in the mail I was instantly taken in by the beautiful illustrations and the brightness of each page
For me a good book involves being totally lost in a story and it never matters to me whether it is a book for children or an adult. I got lost in this beautiful story of Quil, Bailey and the other interesting characters that live in Hoopers Bend. The book begins with Quil finding a china mug with her unusual and not so popular name written on it.
One thing I am learning about Rachel Bright and Jim Field is that they write and illustrate awesome books that are funny, with a captivating message on the side. The Squirrels Who Squabbled is a beautiful story of friendship and working together, but to get there laughter is ensured.
