The Monsters and I have been reading a lot of holiday books lately to get in the mood for Santa’s arrival. Tonight we took a look at The Smallest Gift of Christmas by Peter H. Reynolds.
This book was great because it held the interest of both monsters, a rarity these days as Zoe is reading longer books. The Smallest Gift of Christmas tells the story of Roland, a little boy who is very angry at the size of the present he receives on Christmas. He demands through his wishes that he get bigger and bigger presents.
I won’t spoil the ending, but this is the perfect book to read before the holiday to show kids what really matters in life. You can get your own copy in bookstores or online HERE.
