** 2016 Holiday Gift Guide Feature **
The values the holidays bring hope, kindness and the spirit of giving and are applicable to people of all ages, faiths and walks of life.
This feeling of goodwill is the soul of the children’s illustrated novel The Book of Kringle – Legend of the North Pole, by Derek Velez Partridge with Mary Packard.
In a magical land on top of the world, an epic struggle between light and darkness was waged between two brothers. King Kringle ruled with a harsh hand over the Elves of the North Pole, allowing no laughter, no play and no Christmas celebration. There was only one truly kindhearted soul who could make a difference and change the course of the world. Would the Elves be able to find Santa and bring laughter and joy to the land? Manusol the Elf knows the answer, for it is written in The Book of Kringle.
With stunningly crafted illustrations, a classically designed hardback cover and lyrical text that takes children straight into the glittering crystal mountains of the North Pole, The Book of Kringle is a must-have for young children everywhere this holiday season. Now parents and children alike can become even further immersed in the magic, thanks to an accompanying Color-In Christmas coloring book.
Topics and themes explored in The Book of Kringle include:
– The importance of unselfish acts of kindness in everyday life and how what you put out into the world comes back.
– The magical aspect of Santa and having faith in the spirit of the unknown.
– Providing a fertile emotional ground where parents can begin a dialogue with their child about their own specialness.
– That we are all born with a unique and special gift that we are tasked to find in order to better the world around us.
My Thoughts: I’ve review a lot of children’s books over the past 7 years and this one is definitely in my top 10 of favorite books! There are thousands of different holiday books out in the marketplace for kids and the majority of them have the same or similar story line. I think this one is unique and really puts a new spin on a holiday story. The illustrations in this book are award-worthy & absolutely gorgeous!
The story line is very entertaining for both children & adults! It’s one of those children’s holiday books that will quickly become a tradition to read in your family. You can purchase this fantastic hardcover children’s book from Amazon for a really great price! It’s available in hardcover or for Kindle. I think it’s a fantastic book! In our home, we will be reading it to the kids every year before the holidays to get them excited for the upcoming Christmas holiday & will be making this a family tradition.
