This is a wonderful little book that was a happy surprise for both of my children, ages 3 and 6. The perfect stocking stuffer, it tells the story of Jesus through the common candy cane. It's a thin little soft cover book, so will not likely hold up to very little hands, but the story would be too long for very little children anyway. The story's main characters are a 7 year old girl and her grandpa the candymaker, and the book is perfect for that age level (5-7). Having said that, my 3 year old also enjoyed it, as did all of the adults who were listening.
This is a good example of getting what you pay for. I wish I had spent a few dollars more to get the full size version of the book. Although this book is a good price for someone who wants a nice story to give to their Sunday School class.
My 6 year old daughter was asking me during Advent about why the candy cane is a symbol of Christmas. I explained to her the reasons but then wanted to get for her a book which also explained it in story format. I purchased this book and she loved it. It was a terrific price and it explained the story perfectly. It is a tiny book - not a large book - but this did not bother her. It was a perfect stocking stuffer.
I never do surveys but because of the dissappointment of this book I will. I thought it was a regular size softcover but not a tiny booklet. The story is not filled with moral. The book was just someone with a half way descent story that couldnt afford to package it properly.
