I thought this was an adorable little book. I liked the author's narration but found it a bit hard to listen to at time. Still a cute story for the school aged children!

Mehso-so

I went into this book with really high expectations. I expected to like it as much as Matt Haig‘s A Boy Called Christmas. I don‘t know if it was the audiobook (read by the author) or wrong timing, but I didn‘t care for it as much as I anticipated. It‘s short and I‘m going to give it another go next December.

So I‘m. It going to list the last books I sent for Swaps because they are not open yet. But I will say the book I send most often is the tagged title. It‘s a school J or light MG novel that just explodes with the spirit of Christmas (non-religious).

If you are my partner for a Holiday swap, expect to get this book.

#packingpages @ErinSueGreads

Erinsuereads Love this! I love Christmas so much! I‘ll be sure to check it out 4y
GatheringBooks i read and enjoyed this book around 7 yrs ago thereabouts. i agree with what you said. i especially liked the look of santa here, so young and slim and dashing. 🧚🏼‍♀️💕📚 4y

#SeasonsReadings Day 17: A veritable #HoHoHo book, Cornelia Funke presents a new twist to the jolly, overweight, bearded man mythology that is St. Nick who lives in the North Pole with all the elves and the equally overweight Mrs. Claus. Check out that version of Santa Claus, isn‘t he a cutie? My full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-xh

#bookNBrunch! #ChristmasEve Edition! I had to show off this adorable book from @LibrarianRyan to the family. 😊 We had a feast of egg, hashbrown, & Colby jack casserole, sausage patties, extra crispy bacon, bacon-stuffed pancakes, mini cranberry loaf, and fruit salad. Paired with mimosas! 🍾🥂🍊 And Starbucks Frappuccino. 😁 Yum!!! 😋 🍳🥓

Zelma Yum! Looks much more tasty than my eggs and peanut butter toast. 😆 5y

I love jewelry, but I'm a fat girl so most fun jewelry doesn't fit. Fat fingers, long necklaces. Etc. that's why I make most of mine. Plus I like the funky stuff.

#ssgpthisorthat @miralunasbooknook

Bookzombie I don‘t wear jewelry much, but I have the same issue as you do. 🙂 In fact, I have somehow let my ears close after having them pierced for 20 years. 5y
LibrarianRyan @Bookzombie I'm just lazy and rarely change my earrings. I have tie fighters right now. 5y
tricours I love jewelry! I even have jewelry storage furniture, and it‘s full 😬 5y

This is one of my all time favorite children's Christmas stories. This is a sample of what I do when I write in books. The highlighted word is a vocab word, then this are marked for trivia and discussion. I made a 25 page guide for this book. One of my previous libraries did Book Club Express kits and I got to write the ones for kids and teens. Most of the schools didn't have libraries so we made our own "teacher sets" out of book club books.

HippieChickHomeschool Most of the schools didn't have libraries?! That's so sad. 😢 6y
LibrarianRyan @HippieChickHomeschool yep, population was growing faster than they could build schools. Charter schools were exploding, and public schools had as many as 5 tracks. Many of the new schools were built without libraries, and the old school libraries didn't have enough books to supply all kids. Required school supply was a library card. And they were heavily used. We even purchased towards the school curriculum. (edited) 6y

LibrarianRyan @HippieChickHomeschool these were good schools, they weren't failing schools at all. They and the PL worked together. It was kind of cool in a sad way. 6y
HippieChickHomeschool Thank god for public libraries! To think some people believe they are antiquated! 6y
Linear The horror, the horror. So much writting! T_T this is worse than dog earing a page. 😱😲😖😢😭 6y
LibrarianRyan @Linear to some it is, but for the purpose of this book, it is what it is. Now I usually use an ebook, but when I have to match everything to a printed page, it's twice the work to go find the page. I think I have most my personal kit copies. Think this is bad, you should see my copy of Eragon and The Golden Compass. Written, highlighted, post it's, and probably a few dog ears. Plus lots of tape. 6y
