Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
4.5 / 7.0

I love that the momma bear in this story answers her son’s questions. She shows him throughout the story that God is everywhere and that He gave each of us Christmas. I like the colors in the illustrations of this book, and think it’s a sweet story, though a little long.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0

I really love the message of this book, and think it is a beautiful reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. That being said, it felt just a little preachy, and more like a book I’d pull out for my family to read a couple times each holiday season rather than on repeat.
