Synopsis: In this festive VeggieTales book, the Veggies are celebrating Christmas—decorating the tree, singing carols, and exchanging gifts. But in the middle of all the activity—though it’s so much fun to give and receive presents—the Veggies all know that the greatest gift of all was God’s gift of Jesus, his Son. Children will love the colorful art featuring their favorite Veggie friends. Parents can use this book to introduce little ones to Jesus’ birth as the reason we rejoice at Christmastime.
Review: This is a wonderful board book for Christmas. All the Veggies are celebrating, doing things that most children will relate to as they enjoy looking at the brightly colored illustrations.
The last four pages of the book turn toward the real meaning of Christmas, beginning with the lines "But the best Christmas gift wasn't wrapped with a bow or paper or ribbon--it came long ago." Then it goes on to discuss the birth of Jesus, and that He is the gift that gives us the most joy.
The book is very sturdy and designed to last through the wear and tear of young readers. I plan to share my copy with my infant grandson during this Christmas season, and hopefully for many Christmases to come.
