If there is one gift I am always happy to see for my daughter, it’s books. We are very lucky to have a little girl who loves to have stories read to her (and she pretends to read them to herself as well). But reading the same book over and over grows tiring for mom and dad, so new books are always a welcome gift. In Happy’s Christmas Gift, we discovered a fun new series of books about Happy – a Yorkie – and his adventures.
From the publisher:
Oh no! Happy is in trouble again! Having gone out to post his Christmas letter to Santa, he suddenly finds himself on an unexpected journey.
Although Happy is cold and scared at first, his adventure takes a turn and delivers him to magical lands where he discovers that dreams really can come true. Can Happy save the day? And more importantly, will he get home in time for Christmas?
An adorable character and wonderful, traditional Christmas story brought to life by beautiful illustrations. A treasure of a book that will stand the test of time and will surely be a favourite read for all generations.
Why I Love It – Since we have two Yorkies (Bear and Bella), K automatically fell in love with Happy. But even if you don’t have a Yorkie, your kids will fall in love too. In addition to being a story about a cute pup, Happy has a big heart and the story has a nice message about helping others at Christmas. For those who are bilingual (or learning to be), the paperback version of Happy’s Christmas Gift is in both English and Spanish (side by side on the page). I haven’t seen books done this way before, but it is really neat. In addition to the book, you can order a mini plush of Happy too.
Fun extra – Happy Tales Publishing is hosting a coloring contest through December 10 with three prizes awarded to each of three age categories.
Buy It – Happy’s Christmas Gift is available from Happy Tales Publishing. The hardback version is $19.99, and the paperback (which includes English and Spanish) is $14.99. The plush Happy is $7.50. All ship free in the U.S.
Great Gift For – This Christmas story is a great gift for little ones from birth +. With it’s large print it is even good for early readers.
I am excited that Happy Tales Publishing is participating in The Suburban Mom’s Holiday Gift Guide. In addition to all of the other fabulous prizes, the winner will win a copy of Happy’s Christmas Gift!
