11th Day of Christmas Book Review

The Christmas Sweater (the picture book)

by Glenn Beck, Kevin Balfe, Jason Wright, and Chris Schoebinger
illustrated by Brandon Dorman

Did you get that? How many authors does it take to change a light bulb, oops! - I mean to write a book? It makes me think that Mr. Beck might not have written this book, but since he has a big name, this book was sure to sell if his name was on the cover. Well, this is just my guess, I don't really know. What I do know is that it is just a mediocre Christmas story.

I have not read The Christmas Sweater (the novel), that this book is based on. It has many good reviews. With this in mind, I should be able to read the picture book and understand what is going on without any previous knowledge of the plot. I think I mostly get it, but it seemed too condensed and shortened. It was a bit hard to follow.

I think the message is good for kids. You don't always get what you want for Christmas, but it is the thought and love put into a gift that count. So, it does have worthwhile content. It's just not my favorite book.

My Rating

Overall: 2.5 stars. I'm a Glenn Beck fan, but this book just didn't do it for me.

Objectionable Content: none that I noticed.
