Book Review: The Christmas Magic by Lauren Thompson

The Christmas Magic


I was very excited to win The Christmas Magic by Lauren Thompson through this giveaway at Buried with Children. It's very fitting that I post this review on the eve of Christmas Eve, as this book is about the magic that comes to Santa on Christmas Eve. It's a beautiful story with soft illustrations and a charming, unique vision of Santa Claus.

In this book, Santa lives in a small house in a snowy, wooded place. The reindeer roam in the land around his home. There are no elves to help Santa prepare for Christmas. Instead, he has a room in his home where all the toys are kept. And in this room is also a book with the names of all the children. As Christmas approaches, Santa starts to feel the magic coming and begins to get ready, shining his boots and packing his bag.

I just love this story and so do my kids, especially M, who is 2 1/2. She says her favorite part is when the magic comes. To me, Christmas is a very magical time, and this book really brings that feeling to the surface. I highly recommend The Christmas Magic as a story to read to your children year after year. I know I will.

This review was written based on a copy of The Christmas Magic that I won in a giveaway.
