What kind of new store does a pioneer prairie town need? Everybody waits and wonders as Christmas draws nearer and the new store begins to take shape. Then, one little girl offers to help and finds something nobody had suspected - candy! Plus a marvelous red and white one, which, when turned upside down becomes a J. Each part of this candy tells the story of Jesus. What a marvelous Christmas Eve surprise for all the townsfolk.

Noted for her work on the NIrV Kid's Devotional Bible and The Legend of the Easter Egg, Lori Walburg published The Legend of the Candy Cane in 1997. Since then it has consistently become ever more popular. Now you can own or give some lucky child (or adult) this book. New York Times best-selling illustrator Richard Cowdrey's illustrations are animated, colorful, and intriguingly full of detail. Between them, these two present an intriguing tale, a wonderful read, and food for Christian thought. Just to round things off nicely, this book ends with a brief, true history of how the candy cane took shape. This is a good book for anytime of the year, but especially during the season of our LordÂ’s birth. - Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
