Overview

When Heidi gets in some Christmastime trouble, it will take more than magic to restore the holiday spirit!

Christmas is around the corner, and Heidi is very excited. She loves Christmas decorations, Christmas cookies, and, best of all, Christmas presents! But when she takes her mom’s special charm bracelet without asking—and then loses it—Heidi fears that her mom will be angry with her. And when she finally finds the bracelet, it has been totally crushed by a snowplow. Heidi tries to fix the broken bracelet with a spell, but that only makes things worse! Will Heidi have the courage to come clean and tell her mom the truth—and will there still be room for Christmas cheer?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Heidi Heckelbeck chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
What is the true meaning of Christmas? Does the spirit of the season extend beyond gifts and presents into the heart of what it means to be a loving person? One holiday season, Heidi writes a letter to Santa requesting a new book, Princess Charming. Later that afternoon, Mom shows Heidi a beautiful charm bracelet, filled with pieces that are luminescent and lovely in quality. Mom promises that someday the bracelet will belong to Heidi and tells her that she can wear it with permission. Heidi is so excited about the bracelet that she tries it on that afternoon, without her mother’s permission. She loses it while building a snowman. To her dismay, she is not able to find the bracelet again until a snowplow comes along. Unfortunately, the bracelet is crushed by the snowplow, a devastating blow. How can Heidi tell her mother what she has done? The girl is determined to fix the bracelet, even if she has to use a magical spell and write another letter to Santa. Readers will enjoy this delightful new series, with touches of magic in both the text and pictures. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D. AGERANGE: Ages 6 to 9.
