Title: The Littles and the Perfect Christmas by Joel Peterson
It’s Christmas at the Biggs’ house, but things aren’t so merry when Mr. Bigg loses his job! Despite the depressing situation, Mr. Bigg works on a homemade gift for his son, which ends up being the answer to his employment problem. The Littles are instrumental in helping to make sure the gift is perfect for when Mr. Winters, the toy company owner, comes to take a look at it.
My son and I read this book together for school. We didn’t like it as much as the other Littles books we’ve read. It was probably because there was very little action in this story. Mr. Bigg loses his job, the Littles fix a mistake on the toy Mr. Bigg made, and Mr. Winters comes for a visit. The pace of the story is a bit slow, especially when reading it with a young-ish boy who wants a bit of excitement.
The story is cute and I like the angle they took with Mr. Winters, but I feel like the book would have been better if it were a little shorter. It would be a fun story to read aloud to your kids during Christmas.
I recommend The Littles and the Perfect Christmas to kids who are reading beginner chapter books, or as a cute family read-aloud.
