The Legend of the Candy Cane
From the Publisher:
One dark November night a stranger rides into a small prairie town. Who is he? Why has he come? The townspeople wish he were a doctor, a dressmaker, or a trader. But the children have the greatest wish of all, a deep, quiet, secret wish. Then a young girl named Lucy befriends the newcomer. When he reveals his identity and shares with her the legend of the candy cane, she discovers fulfillment of her wishes and the answer to her town’s dreams. Now will she share what she has learned?
Warm, lavish illustrations by James Bernardin bring to life a timeless tale by Lori Walburg, a story that will help families celebrate the mystery and miracle of Christmas – for many Christmases to come.
This is one of those books that you will want to pull out every December. In fact, I have a box of Christmas books that I can’t wait to pass down to my future grandchildren and this book will be in that fold.
The graphics are just beautiful artwork for kids to look at. I remember being a child just looking at the photos in books. Most of the time I fell in love with the artwork as much as the story.
The story takes you to a warm candy shop and makes you feel like you are there listening in to other people’s conversation. I love how the story is revealed about the candy cane.
Of course it would just be crazy not to have candy canes as you actually read the story.
I love the measurements of this particular book. It is great for little hands. Sometimes bigger children’s books just are too bulky. This is a board book which makes it even more special for me for some reason.
This book would be an awesome gift for any family that celebrates the Christmas season with a pack of candy canes.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
