This is such a sweet story of a young drummer and his encounter with the baby Jesus. It’s about selflessly giving, serving, and loving, a perfect book for the holiday season. This is a wonderful book full of fun rhyming and charming and colorful illustrations. Young readers will enjoy this pleasant book.

Sweet illustrations and a rhyming text make this a lovely book for little ones during the holiday season. We like to keep the bulk of our Christmas story books pointing to Jesus Christ rather than Santa, and this one beautifully gives a message of the true Spirit of Christmas. The theme of the book could be a great discussion starter for families who want to come up with their own ways to give to the Savior by sharing their talents with or giving to others.
