Book Review: "The Christmas Cookie" by Dandi Daley Mackall



Book Description:
The Legend of the Christmas Cookie tells the story of a young boy named Jack who learns from his generous mother the story behind the Christmas cookie. The family who began the tradition of baking the special cookies gave them to the needy and shared the story of the very first Christmas. This sweet holiday book offers inspiration for readers to become cheerful givers themselves and encourages them to share the true tale of Jesus’ birth. A delicious recipe is included on the jacket flap so readers can make their own Christmas sugar cookies.


My Review:
I loved this story!!!   As soon as I started reading it my mind started thinking about how I could share this story in a Christmas program way.   I was picturing my kids church kids holding up different cookies and telling the birth of Jesus with them... makes me excited for Christmas.... and hungry for cookies! 

In this adorable story the author tells the history and purpose of the Christmas cookies... to share the birth of our Savior JESUS!  The author writes that draws in emotions.    The illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, has many pictures that help a person feel the emotions that the author writes about from missing his dad, to jealousy, to hope and joy while sharing the Christmas story.   

My kids, 4 and 8 years old, enjoyed this story as well.   They were asking to bake cookies when the saw the recipes on the last page. Unfortunately for them it was too close to bed time but since snow is falling it might be a great morning for it.  

I recommend sharing this story with your family this Christmas!   This book is from Zondervan and remember to save 30% using the coupon code below:

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
