This is a cute kids book based loosely around the ‘Nativity’. Crystal is an angel in heaven who simply wants to join in and help with all the chores but is repeatedly told she is too little. She doesn’t appreciate being told to run along and play with angels her own size while the grown-ups prepare for an important ‘event’. She considers herself capable of cleaning or singing and gets very upset. One day God finds her sitting crying and decides she can have the most important job of all which includes caring for Mary, ensuring they get a place in the stable, give the shepherds the good news of the saviour and then become the star of Bethlehem! The moral of the story is good as far as encouraging youngsters they can achieve important things regardless of size but I did think it would have been easier to let her do the things she chose instead of entrusting her with the ‘biggie’! Regardless of whether you are religious and make comparisons with the biblical version this is a sweet look at it with some wonderful illustrations. I’m sure younger kids would enjoy it. I did find it a little bizarre reading a ‘Christmas’ themed book in February but this hasn’t altered my opinion. Thanks to the author and Pump Up Your Book for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review.

This book has an interesting and unique take on the Christmas story (although not necessarily Biblically accurate). Crystal, a small heavenly angel, is looking for a job to do. All the angels are preparing for a big even and Crystal wants to help. But regardless of what she finds to do, she just seems to mess things up. Over and over, she is asked to go play with angels her own size, and leave the preparations to the older angels. Eventually, God finds her, sad and crying after her latest rejection. He comes and talks to her. Then He gives her a very important job to do, which she does very well; proving that even small angels can accomplish big things. I read this book aloud to my kids. The story itself was OK and quite engaging. But it was also a bit humorous, because the kids had to stop me during the story to point out the facts that were not Biblical. Such as, at one point, Crystal lies to God (with the best of intentions, of course). He asks her what is wrong and she doesn't want to bother him, so she says "Nothing". She is also shed quite a few tears when the angels ask her to find something else to do, but there isn't supposed to be crying in heaven. And my son said he didn't think there would be a "cleaning crew" either, which was one of the jobs she was trying to be helpful with.I might disagree with him on that one. Of course, I understand the author was mostly creating a story with a moral for kids to learn from. That no matter how young they are, they can do something helpful and still be a blessing. I just thought it ironic that my kids picked up on those things. I don't know if other kids would or not. Overall, the book was cute and the moral of the story was good. I did find a few typos that could have easily been an oversight. I think younger children would enjoy this. It is probably written on a third to fourth grade level, and is fairly long, but it kept their attention well. I received this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of the author and Pump Up Your Book group.

CRYSTAL THE CHRISTMAS ANGEL is a cute children's story. Not exactly biblically correct, but it is still cute. The message is that even little kids can do important jobs. Like Crystal who was too little to help clean Heaven, too little sing in the choir, but yet she helped Gabriel deliver the news to Mary, stayed with Mary during the nine-months of pregnancy and then delivered the news to the shepherds and became the Star of Bethlehem. (like I said, not biblically correct.) The art work in the book is appealing and will hold a small child's attention. 4 stars for a unique retelling of Christ's birth from the perspective of a little angel.
