Book Review: Papa's Book of Mormon Christmas

Papa's BofM Christmas blog tourAbout the book:
Six-year-old Alice would rather get toys than a book any day. But when her grandfather explains that this book is different, Alice begins to see why their first-edition Book of Mormon is so special to her family. Set in the early 1900s, this charming story is the perfect picture book to read with your family as you gather round the Christmas tree.

Every day she continues to create new characters and new worlds using her artistic talents, and she could not be happier.

From Reidhead Randomness:

Sometimes I get caught up in the "Holiday Spirit"...but the more material/superficial aspects of it.  Each year, I try to keep our family focused on the REAL meaning of Christmas.  It can be a challenge, as there are always SALES, DEALS, and Specials that are vying for your attention, and holiday money.  I was grateful for this cute book that helps remind us of the days of simpler Christmases, and help us focus on the things that matter the and the gospel.  The story and illustrations make this a MUST read for your family during the holiday season.
