Usually the VeggieTales begin with a Bible verse, but this one begins and ends with one. It is a story of the Yuletide Ice Cube Fair and Mayor Bob’s ice carving contest. It is a wonderful story with the message that Christmas isn’t about the big, the bright or the new. The story brings the true meaning of Christmas and ends with the Bible verse Luke 2:10-12. The illustrations by Ron Eddy and Robert Vann are beautiful and colorful with that icy feel of winter.
This book is appealing to a wide age range. It is recommended for 4-8 years or early readers, but I would extend that to include reading to 2 and 3 year old children. I received this book from the BookLook blogger program in exchange for an honest review.
