Just about one year ago I was lucky enough to receive an absolutely Enchantingly adorable book “The Santa Switch” Written by Laura Lee Scott and beautifully illustrated by Cheryl Crouthamel. Well it looks like this team did it again… but before we talk about book 2 I have to say if you missed “The Santa Switch” go get it now I can’t say enough about it -It’s destined to be a Christmas “CLASSIC”
*********A Trip For Mrs. Claus*******************
When reading a children’s book I look for four things that I think make it exceptional.
1. It should be something an adult wants to read to a child
2.I really think the pictures or illustrations should be unique and colorful. To give the child something to have fun with.
3.Obviously the story but whats more I like a book that is well written in rhyme,I just think it’s more fun for the kids’
4.I always like when the book has an underlying lesson to learn from
With the well written rhythmic Verse the colorful and adorable illustration the team of Laura Lee Scott and Cheryl Crouthamel have once again created a very fun and compelling children’s book for the Christmas season.An extension of their first book they bring back the loving Jessica to teach the lesson of giving , generosity and selflessness.
Once again Jessica ( Mrs. Claus) has shown what kind of woman she is.It’s the day after Christmas which to say the least is a pretty busy day for the Clauses. But does that slow her down ? Does she decide to just take it easy for a few days? Nope, she’s up with the Sun busily catching up on her work on a much needed app on her computer. Next instead of starting that well deserved Post holiday break she’s off with her Mousey sidekick on a whirlwind trip (once again) around the globe visiting the less fortunate as she delivers a bit of her own touch of warmth to those in need. Showing to one and all the spirit of the Holiday season.To put the needs of others before your own. So only when she feels she has done all she can does Jessica join her family (In a Secret location) for a little R&R…
That’s all I can tell you about the story itself. But needless to say “A Trip For Mrs. Claus” is the perfect book to read to the kiddies ( after The Santa Switch of course)leading up to the big day.It’s not just the colorful well written pages but the silly pictures themselves I think the kids will love. The kids will start to wonder what does go on up there at the North Pole when all the work is done.What do those Elves do for fun and how bout’ those Reins? Do They really Vacation in a secret location?
Part of the fun of this book is searching each page for Jess’s little Mousey friend and all the other cute little things going on in the background.The only thing I don’t like about this future Christmas Classic is unfortunately this one is only available as an ebook for now but never fear I’m sure Passionflower Press is all over it.
So if you are searching for a Charmingly delightful and “Enchanting “tale for the Christmas Season look no further
YOU FOUND IT !!!
