Bedtime stories are a big hit in my home. Getting the kiddo’s in their jammies and cozying up to a snugly blanket while reading entrancing stories is a great way to bond with your children. It’s also a fabulous way to let their imaginations have the freedom to run. A vivid imagination is a hallmark for creative and innovative storytellers, just like the author of our newest storybook, The Girl Who Saved Christmas.
The Girl Who Saved Christmas, is perfect for this time of year, it’s magical, mesmerizing and totally memorable.
This holiday-inspired children’s book was written with the same tempo as Twas The Night Before Christmas. It’s one of my favorite poems, and I love the flow. The story is set at Christmas time, and it’s about a sad little girl named Molly McAme. She doesn’t have a lot of friends, just her pet mouse Mr. Nibbles. Nobody seems to like her, they call her names and she never gets invited to play their games. So, this holiday her Christmas wish is that others will see her as the true friend that she is.
On the other side of the world, the elves have made all the necessary preparations for a very busy night, expect something has happened, something disheartening. A very tense elf approaches Santa with his very long list, there’s no good children, only naughty ones. Alice in Dallas started a fight, Pio in Rio stayed up all night, Nelly in Delhi yelled at her mom, and Shurma in Burma fed worms to his brother. Naughty indeed! Santa is completely disappointed, he sets out in a terrible blizzard with buckets of coal, instead of gifts. Oh no! The storm was so bad that all the chimneys were sealed, that is except one, little Molly’s home. You’ll get totally engulfed in the story and wonder what will happen to Christmas this year?
The outside of this children’s book is beautifully crafted with a red velvet cover and gold embossed lettering. The edges of the pages are gilded and it has a snap closure. The inside has quaint and colorful illustrations that capture your attention and set the tone for this heartwarming tale. I love the last page and inside the back cover, there’s a glossary of words nicely explained and a place where you can create your Christmas list. The Girl Who Saved Christmas is a delightful story and will be part of our festive reading for years to come.
There’s one more point I’d like to share, the story ends with a twist, just so you’re aware. I think there will be a sequel to St. Nick and Molly, delivering presents on an evening so jolly!
