The Legend of the Christmas Cookie: Sharing the True Meaning of Christmas

26263606Did you ever wonder why Christmas cookies are made?

 

This book dives into the true meaning of Christmas by sharing the tradition of Christmas cookies.  When a young boy’s father has to go out West to find work and things are tight at home, he is excited to find his mom making Christmas cookies one day when he gets home from school.  But when she tells him that they are for the needy at Church, he gets sad.  This is when his mom tells him the story behind the Legend of the Christmas Cookie.

 

This is a very cute and meaningful story that kids will enjoy.  The illustrations are very good throughout and depict the meaning of the story very well.  The message throughout the book is very good and worth reading with your kids.  I wish it would have kept going.
