I loved this as a child. Yes I know I am a boy and this should appeal to girls only, but fairies (kind and beautiful on the outside, dark on the inside) always fascinated me. I was a strange kid.

When they found out that Jack Frost had taken Santa's sleigh and 3 special presents (because he had been so naughty that Santa wasn't giving him any presents this year), I was curious to see if the girls and Holly were going to get them back. When they found the first present and Rachel's dog led them to the goblins who had it, they tricked them into thinking that there were cookies by sprinkling fairy dust on the top layer of the barn. Then they got the present and Holly sent it back to the kin ...more

Kirsty Rachel Christmas fairy presents goblins back
Tow girls decorated their Christmas tree. Do you always display Christmas tree on the Christmas Day? Or what do you do the day?
I always display a small Christmas tree. And I always spend the day with my friends.

Tow goblins scrambled for a present. They both didn't hand over that. Have you ever experienced such a situation?
Yes. When I was child, I always scrambled for something with my older sister. :-p

I read this one to my daughter and particularly liked it since they dealt with Jack Frost directly rather than just goblins. Also I started reading it three days before Christmas, exactly the same time as the book so I only read the part for that day and read the next two sections over the following two days.

I was happy that they found the sleigh for Santa and the cool thing is that Santa let them ride in his sleigh.

This is a chapter book but has a picture on each page which was nice in my case since I read it outloud to my special needs teenage son. He enjoyed looking at the pictures while I read the story to him. Although it's a 'fairy' book and the main characters are two girls...this had Jack Frost and his goblins in it. So it wasn't 'pure girley' storybook. Christmas is saved by the two girls and their fairy friend Holly. Jack Frost stole Santa's sled and his reindeer; they have to be caught and return ...more

Recommends it for: Girls in Pre-K through 2nd Grade
What can I say? Another Rainbow Magic book that fits the Special Edition profile, as expected.

This time, Rachel and Kirsty must help Holly the Christmas Fairy find Santa's sleigh, which Jack Frost has stolen. There are three special presents in particular that need to be retrieved. The book is divided into three 5-chapter parts, and one present is found in each part. As an added bonus activity, hidden throughout the book are nine letters which, when unscrambled, spell out a Christmas-related wo

This is a very good book for readers who are just getting confident with their reading skills. This book is mainly targeted towards young girls and would be difficult for a young boy to be interested in. It uses a wide range of vocabulary but nothing that is too extreme for early readers. It also has a fun holiday theme which would make this book a great present around the holidays. This book is seemingly very engaging because it has different new exciting presents that the girls get to discover ...more

I would want to use a magic which I could fly the sky because since my childhood I have wanted to fly through the sky like birds.

5. This book was easy to read. Sometimes for me I was unlikely to imgine the situation but there were some pictures so I enjoyed reading this book.

While on break Rachel and Kirsty find out that Jack Frost is causing trouble again and this time he has stolen 3 presents from Santa`s sleigh. When Rachel and Kirsty meet Holly the Christmas fairy they decide to help Holly get back all 3 presents. I read this book when I was in fourth grade too.

(My overall review for the rainbow magic series)

These books were so magical to me as a child. They really got me into reading and I was so addicted. They helped me learn the colours of the rainbow and entertained me for several years. The books aren't very good. I've tried reading them again because I was interested in what I saw in them. The books are very similar and repetitive but to child version of me, they were completely perfect!

It was ok, not really all that imaginative but my daughter loved it. There are some kids books that I really enjoy reading to her, this was not one of them. Since she enjoyed this book so much I'm sure we will be reading more of this series.

Kirsty and Rachel are tasked with saving Christmas by capturing Jack Frost, and returning Santa's stolen sleigh and Christmas presents, with the help of Holly the Christmas fairy.

Three stories in one!
Hollt the Christmas Fairy is all in a flutter, putting the sparkle into Christmas. Now Jack Frost has stolen Santa's Sleigh. The Queen of the Fairies need Kirsty and Rachel to help Holly get it back.

This is an amazing Christmas time book for little girls as it get their spirits alive with festive fun and gets them wondering if they can find any Fairies.

Q.What was the best Christmas present?
A. My best Christmas present was video game. I have two brothers, so I wanted to play video game with them. But I have never won.

This book is cute, but story is so-so. This book is little bit easy for me. I am going to read more difficult book.
Ley (sounds like "Lee") *my head is a jungle*
When I was younger, I was a big fan of the Rainbow Magic Fairies series. But now, looking back, I think this book was better than that series because it's a little longer than the books in the series. This is a stand-alone special edition book for Christmas. It's pretty cute and it is probably one of the best by this author.

In this book, I liked how Jack Frost stole Santa's sleigh and reindeer. So Holly and the girls had to find them. I liked how there were 3 very special presents and at the end it tells you that the three special presents were for Kirsty, Rachel and Holly (the ones who found them).

Jack frost had stole Holly's three special Christmas presents so Rachel and Kristy had to help her.
Will they find all three of the magical Christmas presents in time? Will they have a fun Christmas or will it just turn out to be a disaster?
