This is a great book for connecting the true meaning of Christmas with a popular Christmas treat. It opens up an opportunity to discuss what Christmas means to them and their family.

Heartwarming and dear, The Legend of the Candy Cane animation will be the next family Christmas classic. The memorable music alone from new artist,Carol Zimmerman, makes this a standout film. Add the professional voices of Florence Henderson, Tom Bosley, Malcom Jamal Warner, Ossie Davis and the voice of Disney's Beauty and the Beast charcte, Belle, Paige O-Hara - the memories are just waiting to happen.

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my fourth grade Religious Education class. It is beautifully illustrated and tells the story of Jesus in a way that gets the children truly excited. It is sure to become a classic and I know it has started a tradition in our home!

I bought two of these books for grandsons for Christmas. The oldest, 10 loves it.

The younger ones, 3 and 4, were frightened by the mention of the crucifixion--body and blood of Christ aspect. I should have paid more attention to that before reading it to them.

Overall though, this is a keeper. Just make sure your children are old enough to process this.
