The Legend of the Candy Cane by Lori Walburg


Book Description

One dark November night a stranger rides into a small prairie town. Who is he? Why has he come? The townspeople wish he were a doctor, a dressmaker, or a trader. But the children have the greatest wish of all, a deep, quiet, secret wish. Then a young girl named Lucy befriends the newcomer. When he reveals his identity and shares with her the legend of the candy cane, she discovers fulfillment of her wishes and the answer to her town's dreams. Now will she share what she has learned? Warm, lavish illustrations by James Bernardin bring to life a timeless tale by Lori Walburg, a story that will help families celebrate the mystery and miracle of Christmas - for many Christmases to come.

The Legend of the Candy Cane is an adorable, chunky, cardboard, children's book targeting children around ages 3-8 years of age.  8-10 year olds could even read it themselves.  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.
