Product Review and Giveaway: Candy Canes in Bethlehem

Candy Canes in Bethlehem
 
With the holidays on the horizon, about adding a special book to the list of gifts to give? Candy Canes in Bethlehem is an endearing story about a young boy's trip around the world to learn about what Christmas means in other cultures. The vibrant color pictures and the fast-paced story line keep the interest of the youngest listeners as well as the older readers.
 
Available for $7.95 from The Catholic Company, this story focuses on the fact that in other countries it is not always wise men and reindeer that make Christmas seem like Christmas. An excellent introduction to Christmas around the world and a nice way to get children interested in learning about the true meaning of Christmas.
 
WHAT DID MY PRODUCT TESTERS THINK?
 
I liked the book. It had a bunch of Christmas traditions.

I thought the book was a little funny. I liked it.

I thought the book was nice especially since you got to learn that the manger isn't the only way that people would celebrate Christmas.

I liked the book. I liked the candy cane and the manger and the girl.

I really like "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. My girls also like "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" by Dr. Seuss.

Thanks for the opportunity to win this book. It looks great!

Last year we read The Story of Holly and Ivy and it's now a favorite as well as The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Tomey.

"Twas the Night Before Christmas" has always been my favorite Christmas tale. Besides the whole Birth of Our Savior story, of course. ;-)
