During the holiday season my family and I look forward to our nightly routine of picking out a Christmas related story to read before bedtime. I received a free copy of Casey’s Bright Red Christmas to share with my children. They were thrilled to add a new book to our holiday collection.
If you aren’t familiar with Casey & Friends it is a series of books that teach children about farm life. Blending non-fiction information into a story format is appealing to young readers. Here are some of highlights of what you can expect in Casey’s Bright Red Christmas:
Bright Illustrations on each and every page. Paul E. Nunn is the talented illustrator who has worked on projects for Disney, Nickelodeon and Sesame Street.
Tractor lovers will find delight in the cartoon character farm equipment illustrations.
An Important Message within this story is remembering to take the time to slow down this holiday season. Real joy comes with spending time with your family and loved ones.
A Cookie Recipe can be found at the back of the book. My children and I enjoy baking so it will be a fun activity for us to try together.
We enjoyed being introduced to Casey & Friends through Casey’s Bright Red Christmas and will look into reading the other stories in the series. The other titles have a mixture of real life photographs of Case IH equipment with cartoon characters. What a great opportunity to mix learning with a fictional story. Story time is one of our most treasured times of the day and we are always looking for new books to read.
