Holiday Gift Guide - The Christmas Pony: A Book Review


About The Book:


With Christmas around the corner, the Turnbull family is in need of a few small miracles.
It is 1937, and Lucy Turnbull knows better than to wish for a pony this Christmas. Her mother has assured her in no uncertain terms that asking for a pony is the same as asking for the moon. Besides, the only extra mouths they need at their boarding house are the paying kind. Then an interesting pair of strangers comes to town, and Lucy's world changes forever.

My Review:
Reading Melody Carlson's books simply delight me! I was absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity recently to read her new Christmas book, The Christmas Pony and it was awesome. 
The book is short, making it a quick read but will definitely put you in the Christmas mood. The descriptions she writes of winter and Christmas are such that you feel you are right in each scene of the book. The book has a sweet storyline and you are once again reminded of the magic of Christmas as children see it.
A wonderful read for all ages, and certain to be a part of my personal Christmas book library for years to come.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
BUY IT: You can purchase The Christmas Pony at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group
