One Christmas Bear - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Tommy Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


Book Overview:

Count the joys of Christmas with Christmas Bear and his arctic friends in One Christmas Bear, the new holiday-shaped board book for toddlers and preschoolers by Anne Vittur Kennedy.

My Review:

A perfect board book for the holidays, One Christmas Bear is told in rhyme.  With cute animal illustrations, each page spread has a numeric progression.  For instance, there's two funny foxes, three rabbits jumping, and four flying eagles.  Parents reading this book to their kids can reflect on the fun things that Christmas has to offer.  They can also go over number counts and point out the number of each item or thing featured.  This book is short, sweet, and full of holiday cheer.
Win It!

One person will win a One Christmas Bear children's board book.

I decorate a little for Christmas, but not as much as I used to. It's hard to get all the decorations out of storage and then put them all away again, the older I get, lol :)

Stacy Renee said...

My mother went all out on decorating when I was a kid so I really try to do the same but fall short every year. I can't always afford the decor around the holidays so I try to DIY ornaments and other decor every year. :)

Yvonne Woodstock said...

We always went all out decorating for Christmas while raising our 5 kids and they loved to help but when they grew up and moved out and we sold our big house and purposely downsized to a teeny tiny apt that we love and became empty nesters.. we donated all our decorations to a needy family with kids and we just put out a mini table top tree and wreath and mistletoe kissing ball for the past 7 yrs.
BUT..
now our 1ST GRANDCHILD was born and will be 9 mos old when he celebrates his 1st Xmas this year, so we went out and bought a full-size tree and lots of decorations that we think a child would especially love the most (very child oriented decor like santa, snowmen, cartoon characters, faux candy, reindeer, etc. and we are all going all out again. We are just getting started We want to get some battery operated animated singing talking moving plush xmas animals for when he comes over too and a collection of xmas books, xmas dvds and kids xmas music. SO EXCITED
