The Legend of the Candy Cane by Lori Walburg, Illustrated by Richard Cowdrey

Have you ever heard the story behind the famous Christmas candy--the candy cane?  The Legend of the Candy Cane is an inspirational story written by Lorie Walburg that walks through the meaning of our traditional red and white candies we hang on our Christmas trees each year.  This board book story is written for children ages 4-8.

I was excited that this book was a board book since I have a two year old who loves books, but ultimately destroys them as he tries to "read" them.  This book is filled with wonderful illustrations that are colorful and detailed.  The illustrations bring the story to life.  The author did a great job keeping the story on the 4-8 year old level, but I'm thinking that even my two year old will love this book.  I'm planning on wrapping up this book as one of our Christmas books we open as we count down to Christmas day.  So check out this cute little book.  This would be such a great book to give as a gift for Christmas especially with some candy canes! 

***I received this free book from BookLook bloggers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
