I love this time of year when all the new Christmas books for kids are being released for the holiday season! Out of all the holidays, my Christmas collection of books is the largest. And, each year I can’t help but add a few new titles to the mix.
This is a sponsored post created for the author of The Night Before The Night Before Christmas.
Last year we began a modified version of Elf on the Shelf . This year our elf, Jack, will be bringing a book on his first visit and I have found the perfect book for him to bring. It’s called (affiliate link) The Night Before The Night Before Christmas by Jay Dee and Darren Geers. Guess what? It’s about an elf!
Elfie has been working all day on a special toy. He is determined to make the toy train perfect. But, Santa is arriving soon for the inspection and Elfie’s list isn’t complete. Nathan, the head elf, pressures Elfie to work faster. When Santa arrives, he reassures Elfie that the task wasn’t about speed. He had commissioned Elfie to make the perfect gift for a very special recipient. Santa shares who the special gift is towards the end. That night, Elfie dreams of Santa following a bright star to Bethlehem to make the special delivery.
I love the message of the book about doing our best no matter what the circumstance. Giving our all makes us feel good and makes those around of us proud.
Darren Geers illustrations are warm and do a nice job of complimenting the text. This is a book that you want to cuddle up with a homemade cup of hot chocolate and a gingerbread cookie and read over and over again.
