The Christmas Web Review

The Christmas season is such a special time for my family and it is even more special because of the wonder and sparkle that I see in my children’s eyes.

To keep alive the excitement of Christmas, The Christmas Web is a children’s storybook that brings to life one family’s tradition of using “magic wands”. These magic wands are actually spools of yarn that will ultimately lead children to their special gift at the end of the “Christmas Web”.

The Christmas Web

In the holiday story, written by Kerry Grinkmeyer it tells the tale of elves who look over the children during the year and know of their most wanted Christmas gifts on their list. The elves (parents) create a web through the house which ends in a special place where the gift is found much to the delight of the children. The creative and fun story was engaging for my children who really loved it and I thought that the illustrations by Diana McManus Whitman were beautiful.

To bring this family tradition to life, The Christmas Web set includes not only the hardcover storybook but three spools of brightly colored yarn so that you too can have your own Christmas Web as a surprise for your kids on Christmas morning. Each of my children receive their most special gift to open last on Christmas morning and I plan to set up their Christmas Web outside in our backyard (we live in Florida so the weather should be perfect) so that they can have a blast finding their presents. We can even record our Christmas web memories in the back of the storybook to reflect upon Christmases past each year.

The Christmas Web would be a wonderful gift idea because it comes in a lovely boxed set or is something especially fun if you are looking to put a little magic into the holiday season this year. My children loved the book and I can’t wait to see their surprise when they wake up Christmas morning to discover their very own Christmas Web!
