BOOK REVIEW - Finding the Baby Jesus


After being forced to wear lederhosen for the annual holiday card picture, twelve-year-old Chris thinks that the least his parents can do is get him the Tony Hawk skateboard he wants for Christmas. But when he recovers the hand-carved Baby Jesus that everyone thought had been destroyed in a fire the year his Grandma died, Chris realizes that some gifts are even more important than skateboards. 

I love a good Christmas story, but often they're silly or way too cheesy or very secular. Kimball Fisher relates a story that avoids all those pitfalls.

I found Finding the Baby Jesus to be just the right mix. It's sweet, realistic, and touching. It has a message without being preachy and the feelings of family, loss, hardship and blessings were wonderfully captured in short story. I'm excited to share this with my family and completely recommend it as a wonderful addition to your family's Christmas reading.
