I recently went to the library to see what was hot in the Children’s section and came across What Happened to Merry Christmas? by Robert C. Baker. The book isn’t new, but it is a timely story about a young boy named Sam who’s teacher tells him “There won’t be any Christmas.” Sam ‘s mother helps him to understand Christmas can be found all around him this time of year. They set out to find Christmas in the decorations and traditions around them.
This story is perfect for children in the early elementary years (kindergarten – second grade). I’m returning my copy today, so I know there’s at least one copy available!
