This review, courtesy of The Catholic Company, is so long overdue, I’m afraid. I’ve read the book myself and to my son several times but didn’t get a chance to write the review until now thanks to my classes and Super-storm Sandy. It’s a good thing that in the Catholic Church the Christmas Season technically isn’t over until February 2nd! In any case…
Candy Canes in Bethlehem is a charming little book. It tells the story of Daniel who is eager to help decorate his parish church for Christmas. He is given the task of putting together the Manger scene and along the way he discovers the many Christmas traditions celebrated around the world.
In my opinion, this book is most appropriate for children of ages 5-8, but children of ALL ages will enjoy this book. I give this book four (4) stars.
