Goodness, I love Christmas books! This little gem was an adorable surprise. The simple story, and meaning behind the Candy Cane come to life through the beautiful illustrations. I also loved that it's a board book, which will be perfect for sticky fingers in the years to come.
In the story, we meet young Lucy. She befriends a man who has been busy building things for his store. As she helps unpack boxes, she begins to find large jars! Soon enough, the man reveals what his store will be...a candy store! But, one of the candies she has not seen before. The candy cane! She learns the story behind the candy, and why it is covered with the colors of pure white and crimson red.
A lovely read for little ones, especially due to the colorful pictures. I think it would make a great Christmas tradition as well. Learn more about these books and more via BookLook! Many thanks to the publisher for my free copy in exchange for an honest review.
