Christmas reads to add to your shelf

The following reviews are Christmas books the whole family will enjoy and love!


The True Meaning of Christmas by Willie B. White is a short read chronicling the meaning of Christmas in an acrostic. The reader discovers the meaning through bible verses attached to each letter of the word Christmas. I found that I read a different letter each day. The short book is an uplifting tribute to what Christmas really means.

Yuletide Tales A Festive Collection is a wonderful collection of traditional and nontraditional holiday stories written by a variety of authors. Each author has a short page and a fantastic story. I loved the variety each author brought to the book. A couple of stories that really stood out to me was Christmas Spirit because it is a story of one good turn deserves another when a family takes in a bum for a night. Giving him a warm place to rest and food in his belly. This story played at my heart strings. Another story I really enjoyed was A Sacred Star. This story has a paranormal Christmas twist to it which really drew in my interest. 

This is an awesome collection of stories to be shared with the entire family.

Collection of 25 days of Christmas Poetry by Jeniann Bowers is a wonderful book of warm holiday cheer. Many of the poems summon Christmas memories of childhood with her use of language. Jeniann is able to use a few simple words to bring forth a sight, sound or smell of holiday memories. In several poems she praises the real reason we have Christmas, love, and how the holiday is not simply about receiving but giving and not only to our loved ones but others as well, especially those in need.

Her words flow easily off the tongue in a rhythmic, playful pattern as one reads each poem. Collection of 25 days of Christmas poetry is the second book of poetry by Jeniann I have read and equally impressive. She has a true talent and gift giving her work a unique spin and quickly making her one of my favorite poets.

I highly recommend this book as its fun, warm, reminiscent and full of holiday joy.

You won't be disappointed :-)
