#StorytimeChristmasCountdown Day 25: Legend of the Candy Cane

The Legend of the Candy Cane
by: Lori Walburg
Picture Book

Beautifully Told & Illustrated

This is one of my favorite Christmas books. Great artwork, a well-told story that incorporates the nativity, as well as a page at the back of the book that tells the history we do actually know of the candy cane.

The illustrations are true artwork, unlike a lot of what is in books for children. I was SO disappointed to learn that the text of this book was recently re-released with different illustrations! The illustrations by James Bernardin are far superior to the new release, so make sure you get the copy shown here!

There's really nothing to dislike about this book! Highly recommend.

5 stars
