Murguia, Bethanie The Best Parts of Christmas Candlewick, 2015. $15.00 PICTURE BOOK
his family get a Christmas tree and spend quite a bit of time and effort to
decorate it. Then they open presents and then it’s time to take the tree away.
Do you know
the word ‘Meh’? that pretty much sums up my state of mind after reading this
book. It was a very simple story, mostly about the tree, but not in a heartwarming way, featuring plain artwork.
Now there are simple stories that are outstanding and unforgettable, but this
one just isn’t one of them.
