Book Review: Yuletide Ice Cube Fair
You know Christmas is right around the corner and if you are like me then you value teaching your children the true meaning of Christmas- JESUS!
October might have just started but it's time to order your book now just in time to read it in December! This new veggie Tales book is perfect to help reinforce the true meaning of Christmas.
At a time when store advertisements boast big holiday gifts, homes display grand decorations and lots of dazzling lights, and everyone is scrambling to get their shopping done, some trusted Veggie friends are here to show kids the real meaning of Christmas in the newest Veggie Tales book!
It's that wonderful time of year again-- the Yuletide Ice Cube Fair! It's a time of festivity and fun as veggies gather to munch on snow cones, slurp down slushies, and ice skate on the frozen pond. But the greatest part of all is the Ice Cube Carving Contest! The veggies have been busy! They've carved Christmas feasts, tress, angels, and more. Each one is trying to outdo the other in an effort to win the grand prize! But the smallest of all these ice entries is a carving done by Junior Asparagus-- a tiny stable with a shepherd on tone knee. Kids will discover that it's not whats grand, or bigger or best that's most important on Christmas--It's Jesus!
I am so excited to share this book with you! It is available October 7, 2014 at stores and online! One great place to order is Zondervan! I am also excited to recommend this Christmas book because the price is only $3.99 which would make a great Christmas present!
The story has great pictures and if your children are fans of Veggie Tales then this book will become a favorite.
I enjoyed the main message of putting Christ at the center of Christmas but the story also motivated my kids and they want to have a sculpture contest. I said we could use snow once we have one so they have to have some patience until the snow flies and their is enough to pack.
I personally liked this story because the winner of the ice sculpting was one of the youngest one and made one of the smallest sculpture but was victorious because he pt his focus on the true meaning of Christmas. It is easy to compare the winner with Jesus for extra conversations. With my children we also discussed the other sculptors and why they carved them or how they related to Christmas.
Thanks Zondervan for providing this book at no cost in exchange for an honest book review. I was not paid for this post and all opinions are 100% mine.
