It tells the story of a new candy shop opening in a small town. A little girl named Lucy helps the shop owner unpack the candy jars and fill them. She comes across a candy that she was unfamiliar with and the shop owner tells her the story of the Candy Cane. J is for Jesus, Shepherd's staff for the shepherds that were told by angels of Jesus birth, Red stripes for the blood that Jesus shed on the cross, and white for Jesus making us pure.
This is a cute book that tells the legend of the Candy Cane to young children. The board book style makes it perfect for the younger children while the illustrations are perfect for any age. I think that this book will make a great gift for my young nieces!

The book is an inspiring tale spreading a glimpse of hope throughout the holiday season with the message of Christmas intertwined in the pages. The reader will learn the Christian symbolism of the candy cane. The illustrations are beautiful and very detailed along with the true meaning of Christmas message. I highly recommend adding this to your Christmas classics to read year after year. I know this book will be added to our church library.

JCMorrowsAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Already a favorite!October 10, 2014JCMorrowsAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Not at all what I was expecting
When I read the word hardcover, I assumed it was a regular hardcover book but what arrived in the mail was a board book.
Imagine my surprise
Regardless of my surprise, my children LOVE it! Even though it is simple enough for a very young child to enjoy, my children (who are 8 and 11) are enchanted with the beautiful story inside!
My daughter has claimed it for her very own. She took it OFF of my shelf and proudly carried it to her own, where she gave it a place of honor.
My son is not quite as possessive of it but he stood over her shoulder as she read and did not once have a comment about it being a baby book which is his usual comment about any book his sister who is three years younger, picks up to read.
Not that I can blame him since he is reading on a high school level already.
But I think it says a lot about how wonderful the story within!
I am actually excited! Now, instead of donating the book, we have what will become an heirloom!
And no we dont have any other board books we will be able to pass on, none of them survived my own children. Im so very thankful they are both learning to appreciate books now being cautious with them and cherishing their favorites.
And The Legend of the Candy Cane is clearly already a favorite!
I received the book in exchange for an honest review.
