First Snow in the Woods

Absolutely stunning photography.  This lovely storybook can be read aloud or just absorb the beautiful pictures.  It's one of those picture books that you can just turn the pages and talk about the pictures.  For older children, the story is just right. 
 It's a majestic book because of the photos. 
 It's a memorable book because of the gifted storytelling.

The Legend of the CANDY CANE

The real reason we celebrate Christmas.  I remember when this book came out in 1997.  It was the first time I had ever heard the story about the meaning of a Candy Cane.  My daughter was four years old.  In fact, the book was a gift to her from my mom and dad.  What a special gift indeed.  Just like the gift from God who sent His son Jesus into this world to save us.  
The Legend of the CANDY CANE is a perfect first book to read this Christmas season.  
Perhaps because it tells the true story of this beautiful time of year.
