Review of Yuletide Ice Cube Fair by Karen Poth

I love Veggie Tales!!  So do my kids.  The second I took this book out of the package, my three year old started squealing.  The characters are always cute and engaging, and I love the message.  

Like other Veggie Tales book we have read, this one had a rhyming pattern that gave the story an easy rhythm.  While most of the story centered around ice sculpture creations, Junior's nativity scene sculpture brought the true meaning of Christmas to light.  This sparked a great conversation about why we celebrate Christmas and why Jesus came to Earth.  We are always trying to refocus the attention back to Jesus instead of presents around the holidays, and this was another great seed to plant.  I think we'll bring it back a few more times between now and Christmas!

I receive books in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
