Children's Book Review: My Christmas Stocking: Filled with God's Love by Crystal Bowman, illustrated by Claudine Gevry

Book Description:
What happens on Christmas Eve while children sleep? "Their stockings are filled up with candy and toys, and happy surprises for good girls and boys." A kindhearted man hid a gift in a stocking, long ago. He did it to "remind everyone of the Gift that God sent." Christmas stockings help us remember God's love.

My Review:
If you hang stockings in your home at Christmas, My Christmas Stocking is the perfect book to tell children where the tradition started. This is a sweet board book that tells the story of St. Nicholas and ties in his love for Jesus and his desire to share that love. I appreciate the books that retell the true life of St. Nicholas and emphasize the giving instead of the getting. 

Stockings are still a big part of tradition for my children and grandchildren. This will be passed on to my youngest grandchild on Christmas this year.

The bright, happy illustrations add merriment to the story and will attract a toddler's attention. And I like how the book is in the shape of a stocking.
