Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas Magic Audio book and Soft Cover Giveaway

Christmas Magic is exactly what this book is. There is nothing like some heartfelt stories to remind you what Christmas is about. This book like all other Chicken Soup for the Soul books I have read does not disappoint.

The foreword in this book was written by the big man himself “Santa Claus”. He talks of his schedule, reindeer training and reminds you to remember those cookies. I very fun way to start off a book full of Christmas miracles. Christmas Magic is appropriate for young readers and listeners so maybe take a few minutes each day to read to your little one. Help them with the true meaning of Christmas.

My schedule is busy and I don’t always have time to read books in the entirety without spending months but I do for the purpose of my review read as many passages as I can manage to really get an idea of the book. I’m lucky that Chicken Soup for the Soul is compromised of small stories.

I have to mention that that touched my heart for personal reasons. It is titled Little Boxes, and is a story of a terminally ill mother that wants to go shopping. Not sure if their mother is up to it the kids decide to grant her wish and take her shopping two days before Christmas. It turns out she was looking for “little boxes”. Little boxes to put her precious and prized jewelry in to give to her children and grandchildren on what would be her final Christmas.

The reason this strikes such a cord with me is having been through this with my stepfather I had to stop many times through a 2 page story to hold back my tears. I myself have received that little box with a gold locket from my stepfather on his final Christmas.

These are stories that remind us that our loved ones are precious and Christmas is magically. Don’t fight or hold a grudge, enjoy the season and love your friends, family, and neighbors.
