My Review

Ornaments of Love is an endearing picture book that will get the whole family into the mood for Christmas while reminding us of the importance of family time and making memories. Amanda liked the sweet memories that ten-year-old Ayana shared as she held each ornament in her hand before placing them on the tree. She thought the picture of the parents kissing and Ayana closing her eyes and sticking her tongue out was funny. She also liked it when Rosie, the black Labrador, wanted her bone ornament.

I could relate to the mom getting upset when she saw her special ornaments lay broken on the carpet. I thought it was a good lesson not to overreact. Instead of the mom spoiling the atmosphere by staying upset, she decided to make the most of it with those closest to her.

Amanda was inspired by the story and the free coloring pages and today began listening to our Christmas CD's. Christmas is a special time and this book is a perfect reminder of that. I recommend it for children ages 4 to 10. Parents and grandparents will enjoy it too when they read to their children or grandchildren!
