    What a great children’s book that shows the joys and happiness of the Christmas season with family and friends This book did a wonderful job in keeping the real reason for the Christmas season at the forefront of the family’s trip all over the United States The illustrations are well done and the rhyming is catchy I like the fact that this book shows how many different Christmases can be celebrated based on location andor climate in the United States but that the reason for Christmas is same in celebrating the birth of Jesus The true response and rating of this book is when I read it with my four kids ranging from ages 4 through 10 and they wanted to read it again right after we had finished it the first time This will be a great book that we can pull out every Christmas and read again and againWon this book through Goodreads First Reads program What a great giveaway program Thank you once again to Sara for making this book available My family and I really enjoyed reading this book God Bless

    This is an illustrated children's book about Christmas and the difficulties surroundings an extended family The story centers on a family taking the month of December to visit and celebrate Christmas with many relatives in 17 different locations in the United States The story shows the different climate and celebrations in these cities The illustrations are rich in primary colors but the majority of the scenes show nighttime almost like the whole story is happening as a dream The languagevocabulary of the story seems too advanced for younger children Children and even adults may have trouble with words such as miraculous possibly and translations The rhyme scheme does not flow smoothly The use of numbers from one to seventeen can be good or bad depending on the age of the child reading the story I liked the concept but felt that the presentation needed polishing

    Synopsis 'I thank God for Jesus and family galore For seventeen Christmases never a chore' Christmas is full of adventure when the family decides to go on a holiday road trip They start in California and travel to North Carolina and then to Colorado And that's only the beginning New sights and ways to celebrate the birth of Jesus abound All this plus the special visits with family and friends turn the holidays into seventeen wonderful ChristmasesMy Review This was a fun book especially considering we also have family all over the country Munchkin enjoyed the different states and discussing how family lives in some of them It does give the rather outrageous expectation that anyone could take enough time off to drive to that many states to celebrate holidays That said it is still fun to give an idea of where states are and how different the holidays are celebrated

  8. Shiree Shiree says:

    This book is a perfect edition to your Christmas traditions It not only lets little kids and big kids know that christmas is about spending time with loved ones but it also shows that there are different ways to celebrate Christmas For example my daughter was surprised when the kids got to go swimming in the warmer climates So not only is it a great Christmas story but it makes children think of how Christmas is special and can be a different experience for everyone Both of my kids loved this book and I throughly enjoyed reading it to them I foresee this being a book we read at Christmas time for years to come
