Book Review Checkin' It Twice
I apologize for being late with my post today. It was my birthday over the weekend and I partied hard every day and had a chocolate hangover this morning.
But I am excited to tell you about a book that got me into the holiday spirit. Those of you who know me, you know I feel annoyed by Christmas music when it starts long before December and I feel all Bah Humbug until we're at least past Thanksgiving. But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Checkin' It Twice. It's a compilation of short Christmas stories and has something for everyone's taste.
I liked that some of the stories were spiritual, some were fun, some brought a tear to my eye, but all of them were ones I could read to my kids and we would walk away feeling good. I'm always on the lookout for new Christmas stories we can add to our yearly Christmas readings and this one definitely had a couple that fit us. I tried to choose my favorites, but honestly, they all had something to love about them.
It was a cute book full of Christmas cheer and it definitely got me in the Christmas spirit.
Here is the back copy:
Can Santa learn a lesson from the Savior?
Can a foreign exchange student help you see Christmas a little more clearly?
Do things really look better from a distance?
And just how many holiday ornaments does one woman need?
