"One Christmas Bear" Children's Book Review/Giveaway

Some of the most enjoyable times of my day have been spent reading with my family.  Tucking kids into bed and spending quality time reading to them is very special to me.  During the holiday season, I look for a cute book to read to them and this year I discovered, "One Christmas Bear" by Anne Vittur Kennedy.

About the author:
Anne Vittur Kennedy has been delighting young children with her humorous and playful books for thirty years. Her awards include American Library Association’s Notable Books List, Teacher’s Choice, The Green Earth Book Award, and The Green Prize for Sustainable Literature.

About the book:
Count the joys of Christmas with Christmas Bear and his arctic friends in One Christmas Bear, the new holiday-shaped board book for toddlers and preschoolers by Anne Vittur Kennedy. Little ones will love to count seasonal elements, such as crunchy candy canes, colorful ornaments, and frosty snowflakes, and parents will appreciate the emphasis on family, friends, and the sweet depiction of the reason for the season—Jesus’ birth!

With beautiful illustrations and simple, rhyming text, One Christmas Bear is perfect to help little ones learn to count, and wonderful for families to enjoy together. Count the Blessings of Christmas! Follow the merry adventures of a polar bear and the Artic animals as they enjoy winter fun! From crunchy candy canes and frosty snowballs to friends to play with and a family to love, your little one will enjoy counting God’s wonderful gifts. 

Our thoughts:
This book is really cute.  It is a very sturdy board book and it is really easy to clean.  One of the main things I like about this is that it is a counting book.  I encouraged my kids to count the different items, like the caribou and cookies in the photo above.  Rhyming text really helped keep my kids interested, and by using cute animals, doing fun things, they were hooked!  The animals, although different, were having fun together and were friends.  All these things were given to us by God.  Beautiful!
