One of the Christmas traditions our family has as far as gift-giving is concerned is that our son, who is now five years old, gets a Christmas book each year. Sometimes it’s a classic, like The Polar Express. Other times it’s a lesser known book. It may be spiritual or secular (although we lean more towards the spiritual). But every year he gets a Christmas book. I look forward to the collection he will have someday that he can pass on to his children.
This year’s book is pretty easy. One Christmas Bear, written and illustrated by Anne Vittur Kennedy, is both fun and spiritual, with adorable characters in bright colors that will catch the attention of any young child. I’m thrilled to add it to my son’s collection.

I must also add that there is an educational element to the book in that it counts the Christmas Bear and his friends from one to 10, along with fun Christmas goodies and traditions in which they all take part. The whimsical characters make the book fun for all ages, but especially for the preschool child who is learning to count.
The end of the book brings everything together with all of the new friends going to their homes with their mommies and daddies, reminding us of the importance of family during the holidays. It is a fun, attractive book with entertaining, rhyming text that the child you love is sure to enjoy.
