Oliva helps with Christmas

Part of what makes the holidays special are all the traditions. One of The O'Regan family traditions is to bring out all our children's Christmas books around Thanksgiving.  We have dozens of wonderful books recommended to us by The Storybook Shoppe that are perfect for celebrating the season.  Olivia helps with Christmas, by Ian Falconer, is one of our absolute favorites and comes highly recommended by our entire family and the staff at The Storybook Shoppe. Miss Bonnie and I also showcased it on WHHI TV's Holiday Shopping Showcase this week as one of the great gifts for the holidays! (Make sure you follow our Facebook page and stay tuned for updates on our airing.)  This one is just plain FUN and FESTIVE. 

Olivia is her usual precocious, curious, and unique self. Wanting to be helpful to her mother, she feeds her brother breakfast, help with the Christmas tree lights and decorates the tree and table. 

She waits mostly patiently for Santa by the window, updating everyone on the weather frequently, and doesn't allow her father to make a fire. (It might cook Santa, after all!) Like so many families, the little piggies barely finish their breakfast before ripping into their packages and stockings. They are appreciative and enthusiastic about their gifts (although some more than others.) 

Olivia goes on an adventure with one of her new gifts and in the end, it's all just so entertaining and fun. There's nothing overly complicated, no underlying message or teaching moment, it's just an enjoyable book for your little ones to read or listen to.
