A Grand read

Cute Board book!

 As you research the candy cane you will discover that this is not the "real meaning for the candy cane. It is what  Christians have used to put Christ back into all  the traditions of Christmas!  Yet I still enjoyed the story!!

  With very beautiful pictures in, this sweet and heartwarming story unfolds in "The Legend of the Candy Cane." Every candy cane you see during the season of Christmas should remind you of Jesus Christ's reason for coming to Earth. Remember Jesus when it comes to Christmas, He truly is the reason for the season. This would be a wonderful addition to any Christmas library for children and adults alike. Will make a nice  gift, and will be read each season.

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.

Not your topical baby board book. It  felt like one of those special books to be read and treasured!
