Blog Tour - It's All About Christmas Review and Giveaway


About the book: Like heirloom ornaments on a splendid tree, It’s All About Christmas will put you and your family in a festive frame of mind for a glorious holiday season. Stuffed with stories, songs, poems, Christmas history, joyful traditions, recipes, and activities, this delightful book celebrates all things Christmas—from the sacred story of the Nativity to the lore of Saint Nick. Opening this book is like tearing the paper off a much-anticipated gift, offering new surprises with each turn of the page. Generously illustrated with scores of vibrant vintage images, It’s All About Christmas will remind you of Christmases past, help you appreciate Christmas present, and guide you to creating memories for the Christmases to come.

My review: The first thing I noticed about this book was the old time feel that the whole thing has. The pictures, the type, the way it's set up all feels as though it's an old book even though it's brand new. 

I had a great time looking through this book! It's full of Christmas stories, poems, traditions, recipes, and songs or hymns. I loved that with the songs there was a bit of a story about how the song came to be. It was kind of fun that when I opened it, the first thing I came to were the stories about the Savior's birth from all of the Standard Works. Such a great idea to teach your kids about His birth from the Book of Mormon as well as the Bible! 

I'm excited to use this book at Christmas and have it become a tradition that our kids look forward to!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Buy your own copy at Amazon, Seagull Book, Deseret Book. Online and in stores.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…
