One dark November night a stranger rides into a small prairie town. Who is he? Why has he come? The townspeople wish he were a doctor, a dressmaker, or a trader. But the children have the greatest wish of all, a deep, quiet, secret wish. Then a young girl named Lucy befriends the newcomer. When he reveals his identity and shares with her the legend of the candy cane, she discovers fulfillment of her wishes and the answer to her town's dreams. Now will she share what she has learned? Warm, lavish illustrations by James Bernardin bring to life a timeless tale by Lori Walburg, a story that will help families celebrate the mystery and miracle of Christmas—for many Christmases to come.

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!

This Christmas story is a story within a story. The story has charm and I would even say magic, the type of which Chrristmas is made. The illustrations evoke the time period in which it is set, the late 1800s.

This is one of those books that you will want to pull out every December. In fact, I have a box of Christmas books that I can't wait to pass down to my future grandchildren and this book will be in that fold. The graphics are just beautiful artwork for kids to look at. I remember being a child just looking at the photos in books. Most of the time I fell in love with the artwork as much as the story. The story takes you to a warm candy shop and makes you feel like you are there listening in to other people's conversation. I love how the story is revealed about the candy cane. Of course it would just be crazy not to have candy canes as you actually read the story. I love the measurements of this particular book. It is great for little hands. Sometimes bigger children's books just are too bulky. This is a board book which makes it even more special for me for some reason. This book would be an awesome gift for any family that celebrates the Christmas season with a pack of candy canes. Blessings to you! You are loved!

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.
