I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
In this festive VeggieTales book, the Veggies are celebrating Christmas—decorating the tree, singing carols, and exchanging gifts. But in the middle of all the activity—though it’s so much fun to give and receive presents—the Veggies all know that the greatest gift of all was God’s gift of Jesus, his Son. Children will love the colorful art featuring their favorite Veggie friends. Parents can use this book to introduce little ones to Jesus’ birth as the reason we rejoice at Christmastime.
VeggieTales has long since been a unique series that spreads the Word of God in creative ways for children of all ages. Though they have changed a lot in recent years from their original stories (and look), they still have the same goal, to tell kids how much God loves them and to make them wiser in their day to day lives.
The Best Christmas Gift Ever! is written in the newer style with the newer animation but it is a super cute book nonetheless. Without me trying to sound like the synopsis, it is a bright book with the intentions of spreading the real meaning of Christmas while also enjoying the usual traditions of the holiday season.
It’s writing is fun and engaging and the hardback, which has actual cardboard pages, is durable against even the toughest accidents (such as falling in the bath tub because the only time your toddler will listen to a story is, well, in the bath tub…). So with the upcoming season and the need for some smaller “stocking stuffers”, I highly recommend The Best Christmas Gift Ever! (pun may or may not have been intended…)! I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
