    I love this book, but buyer beware! Barnes and Noble still has not delivered this book to my niece and it will be an entire month before they expect delivery to her door.
    I will order from Amazon next time.  I am very disappointed in the way Barnes and  Noble handles ship directs.

    Discovering this book was a delight!  Author Lori Evert and her husband per Breiehagen have teamed up to create an enchanting story that will surely capture children's interest and imagination, and will also touch
    their hearts. It is a mystical tale about having dreams and how our dreams become real for us--all experienced through little Anja's adventure in a Nordic winter wonderland.  Stunning photography invites you to linger
    on each page, and the open ended finish to the book provides an opportunity to further engage in the story.  This is a lovely Christmas book that both adult and child will be happy to read over and over again.

    The Christmas Wish by Lori Evert
    Anja's dream is to become one of Santa's elves.
    She prepared by doing things for others to get ready for the big day.
    Besides her horse she has help from a red cardinal and she knows what other signs to look for: stars, Northern lights, etc
    She has help from others and they are able to tell a tale from a book she is carrying.
    She is given something special by Santa and she wonders if she has dreamed all of this..
    What I like about this book besides the story are the pictures, brilliant colors and so many creatures to point out in their native land.
    I received this book from Edelweiss and Random House in exchange for my honest review.

    A beautiful book, from start to finish

    My 7-year-old granddaughter and I both love this book...the photos are magical, the story is well-written and the message -- be kind, be brave, and follow your dreams -- is inspiring. This has become my new favorite, not only for Christmas but for all year long.
