Matchless: By: Gregory Maguire

This was a wonderful addition to Hans Christian Anderson story of "The Little Match Girl". Gregory Maguire took his story a little further by telling of the life of a little boy and his mother and how their lives came to combine with the family of the little match girl. It takes a very sad story and continues it so you can see the good that happens in the following year. It was a fun quick read and very heart warming.

The Tale of the Three Trees

The Tale of the Three Trees: By Angela Hunt

Well it's that time of year again when all the fun cute stories about Christmas start to surface. Where kids climb onto laps and parents and grandparents alike read the old and familiar stories to them. This is a favorite in our house. It's the story of three trees who had separate dreams and how through a very unique way they were able to fulfill those dreams because of the Savior. It has a great message and it's a great reminder that the real reason why we celebrate Christmas is because of our Savior and Redeemer. I would recommend this as a great book to add to any Christmas book collection.

Hexes and Tooth Decay

Hexes and Tooth Decay By: Nancy Fulda

This is a really cute short story about the tooth fairy with a twist. It talks about this poor creature that was just wanting to eat his sandwich when he ran into a witch who cursed him. It's a story for kids maybe a little older that could get the humor of it all. But I really enjoyed reading it.
