Book Review Of “The Broken Ornament” By Tony DiTerlizzi @Simonkids @TonyDiTerlizzi
When a beloved ornament breaks, will it ruin the holidays or save them?
Jack wants this to be the best Christmas ever, and he knows just how to make it happen…
More! More lights, more presents, more cookies, more treats. More. More. More! So, when Jack breaks a dusty old ornament, he’s not sure why his mom is so upset. They can always get more ornaments, so what’s the big deal? Turns out the ornament was an heirloom, precious for more reasons than one. And Jack has a lot to learn about the true meaning Christmas.
A fairy emerges from the shattered ornament. She has the power to make the most magical Christmasy things happen. Suddenly trees are sprouting, reindeer are flying, and snowmen are snowball fighting. All of it is so perfect, or it would be if she could fix Mom’s ornament. But she can’t.
So it’s up to Jack to make some Christmas magic of his own. (From Goodreads)

The illustration’s are absolutely beautiful, and the story is so sweet and magical. We love Christmas in our house and make a huge deal out of it. I loved the sentimental moral of this book. Just because we can buy more of something, doesn’t take away from the special meaning of an object. In this case it was an Ornament that Jack’s mom found special. Jack learns a valuable lesson from this.
A very heart warming book, that taught my guys a lesson too. We just really loved this book, and it made two little boys very, very excited for Christmas. I appreciated that book flowed so well, there was just the perfect amount of story per page, enough to keep my boys interest. And fast enough that I didn’t mind reading the book five times in a row. HAHA!
