A wonderful tale is told in ‘The First Christmas Sweater’

The holidays are a special time of year. They bring families together to share in this wonderful time of year. Each year a good amount of holidays movies, TV specials and books come out. It is rare to see something like The First Christmas Sweater though. I was able to get a digital copy of this book and here is what I thought of it.

You can read the plot for The First Christmas Sweater here:

There are two things everyone knows about Hillary the sheep. One is that, unlike her typically hued friends, Hillary’s wool is all the colors of the rainbow. The other is that she adores everything about Christmas, especially Santa. So when word gets out that Mr. Claus is traveling across Ireland seeking the perfect sheep’s wool for a sweater to keep his belly warm, Hillary’s head begins to spin. Could her wool-dest dreams be about to come true?

The First Christmas Sweater was a really fun read. From the characters and their quirks to the location and story together made for a great story. This isn’t the usual kind of holiday book to come out and that is a welcome change. I can see readers of all ages having a lot of fun reading this book.

The First Christmas Sweater is available now. You can order this book on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.
