I always enjoy checking out different children’s books, and so I was excited to receive another Christmas one to read and review - TheLegend of the Candy Cane.
This book tells the story of a new candy shop opening in a town and how a little girl sees a candy cane for the first time at that candy shop. The owner of the candy shop explains the Christian meaning behind the candy cane.
The pictures in this book are pretty detailed and kind of cute.
How strong is the book?
This is a sturdy boardbook.
Who the book is for:
This book says that it is for ages four through eight on the back, but that makes me wonder why it is a boardbook. I would say this book is appropriate for four through six, and I wonder why they chose to make it a boardbook.
What I liked:
The pictures are cute.
The story shares a good message.
What I didn’t like:
The story is a bit boring.
The fact that this is a boardbook is a bit weird for the length and maturity.
Overall, this is an okay book.
I give The Legend of the Candy Cane 3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book free to review from BookLook. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
