Badger is not amused with all the hustle and bustle surrounding Christmas.  He makes it very clear to his fellow animal friends that he just wants to be left alone and hibernate in peace...uninterrupted...everyone stay away...period.  He goes into his house and slams the door shut, checks out his winter stash of food, then satisfied, settles down for his long winter's nap.  But things don't go exactly as he plans. With many disruptions and annoyances he discovers that maybe his sleep may have to be postponed for this winter. He tries to ignore all the distractions at first that cause him to get grumpier and grumpier. Then an urgent request reaches him that makes him unable to settle back down and journey back into slumberland.  He opens his eyes wide, jumps out of bed and runs to help a friend who is in desperate need of him.  He discovers a true Christmas is getter to give than to receive.  He is so happy when he is recognized as a hero. He invites all of his friends inside his home, opens wide his cupboard doors, and spreads a festive feast fit for a king for everyone to enjoy.  I think he even amazes himself when he realizes how fun celebrating Christmas can be and he wants to make it a tradition for years to come.

Grumpy Badger’s Christmas is a very enjoyable book and sure to become one of my family’s traditional books to read during Christmas time. It follows the story of a badger who wants nothing to do with the Christmas spirit and instead wants to be left alone. However, over the course of the book, badger realizes he does care about the other animals and by helping them out, comes to feel and appreciate the Christmas spirit. This is a great book that doesn’t focus only on Santa but also how Christmas is about helping others. This is a great way to teach children about it and through the great illustrations and storyline, is bound to be one the kids will want to read many times.
