What My Child is Reading!


We have reading some spectacular Christmas books this week.

First up Lucille's Snowsuit by Kathryn Lasky.

Now I must admit that I have not yet read Lucille's Snowsuit, but daddy has read it before bed.  The front cover looked so cute I couldn't resist at the library :)

Second Gingerbread Friends By Jan Brett.



Don't you just love Jan Brett?  Her illustrations are gorgeous, the story flows so nicely and there is a gingerbread recipe in the margins of the book.
Gingerbread Friends is a cute story about the Gingerbread Baby who heads out into the world in search of some friends. There is a wonderful surprise page at the end,

The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado.

This is my favorite Christmas book.  I love the lesson in it that no matter what your lot in life is God has a purpose for you and it is BIG!

Find out what other children are reading over at Mouse Grows Mouse Learns


And for even more Christmas fun head on over to The Palace and enter my GIVEAWAY!!!

I haven't seen The Crippled Lamb before. We'll have to search out a copy. :)

All of these sound so good! I judge a book by its cover too - especially those really cute ones! And any Jan Brett book is a winner in our house. Thanks for sharing!

The Crippled Lamb sounds interesting. For whatever reason Anna didn't warm up to Jan Brett, at least not yet.

I am going to have to look for The Crippled Lamb as well. Gingerbread Friends sounds like a cute book too.

I love the Crippled Lamb. I was lucky and got to hear Max Lucado speak at my college.
