Review by Milo

This book is all about weird, but true Christmas facts. It shares Christmas traditions from all around the world. I liked this book because I was able to learn about the all the different ways that kids celebrate Christmas. I really like to learn about different countries. There are lots of cool pictures, too!

Two facts I really liked were: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was almost named Reginald and three brothers in Minnesota sculpted a giant sea turtle made of snow that was almost as tall as their house. The picture is really cool.

I give this book 4 stars, I would recommend it to any one who loves Christmas and loves to learn about different cultures. There were a few facts that were a little scary that I didn’t like those, like in Iceland kids fear the Yule Cat, a mythical monster who eats children at Christmastime.

Ps: there is also a book trailer – https://youtu.be/0a1rpT_2GFA
