The True Meaning Of Christmas
Boys Need Santa Claus Because… by Tonya L Matthews is a lovely little book for the under tens showing them the true meaning of Christmas. It is aimed primarily at boys but girls would enjoy it too.
We see a young boy who knows what he wants for Christmas. As he gets older, he realises there are lots of things that boys need – and none of them need to be wrapped under the tree. Such as friendship, healthy food, exercise etc. He learns the lesson that we really need other people and Jesus.
The book is written in rhyme, giving a bounce-along feel. This makes it easy for our children to join in when they have heard the tale a few times.
Each page is simply and beautifully illustrated. I had a black and white version on my kindle. I image that the colour version is even more beautiful. Each page can promote a discussion with our children.
Every child’s library should have a copy of Boys Need Santa Claus Because… to remind them that the true meaning of Christmas is… Jesus. Will you open your heart to Him today?
I received a free copy from the author. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
