Book Review: 'Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas' by Julia Rawlinson

✰✰✰✰½ As Fletcher makes his way through the woods to the rabbit family's new burrow, he wonders how Santa Claus will ever find the new home. With the help of his animal friends, Fletcher devises a way to make a trail through the woods. However, when snow starts to fall and cover up the trail, Fletcher continues to worry. Fortunately, Santa always finds a way to deliver his presents much to Fletcher's surprise.

The Bottom Line: This is a charming tale for kids in grades K - 2. With a focus on friendship, little ones will learn that a little faith goes a long way. Kids will also love Tiphanie Beeke's soft and beautiful pastel illustrations. Enthusiastically recommended for Christmas Eve storytelling.

Details: Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas written by Julia Rawlinson and illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke. Hardcover picture book published by Greenwillow Books in 2010. 32 p. ISBN: 978-0-06-199033-5
