Many families travel over the Christmas holidays - some more than others. However, no matter how much we may travel none of us can match the families in 17 Christmases. They travel from coast-to-coast in order to visit family in friends. Each visit brings smiles and happy fun-filled family activities...then *poof* they are of again! Throughout the journey they are reminded of the importance of family and remembering the true meaning of the holiday.

"!7 Christmases" combines a very clever rhyming scheme with colorful illustrations to make a wonderful story for the holidays. The star of the story is the rhyming pattern which is sure to bring a smile to all children. The story has a religious undertone, but the message is appropriate for everyone of the Christian faith.

Final Verdict -Those of us who travel for the holidays can instantly connect to "17 Christmases" - A can't miss Christmas story for all kids under the age of 12!

With beautiful illustrations and catchy rhymes, this book is sure to be a hit this Christmas.      I'm a fan of the multipurpose children's book. First and foremost, my kids enjoyed this cute story. It's good for pre-readers as well as new readers. …

About this book


The text has a strong Evangelical Christian slant, with many references to Jesus and the Nativity story as well as praying 'that Christ's love spreads to all of the nations!' Bright illustrations in deep hues depict the crowd of relatives and the family's trusty station wagon buzzing along from state to state. -- Kirkus Review (Kirkus Review)
