When I saw this book being offered as a giveaway, I immediately signed up for it. There is something about Christmas and children’s stories that grabs my attention right away. I guess it brings me back to that magical feeling of Christmas when I was young. It also brings a certain warmth and joy. This book is full of attractive illustrations that capture the mood for Christmas. It is also simple enough to be understood by kids. It blends tradition and magic to trigger their interest and imaginat ...more

I received a Mobi.file copy of this book from the author through a giveaway she had on LibraryThing, and the following is my honest opinion.

The moment my inner-child began reading this book, it immediately thought of Christmas and the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, especially when it mentioned the stockings being hung with care, in the hopes that St. Nicholas will soon be there.

Shelly, remembering she had no stocking to leave for Santa so he can fill in with all sorts of candy and other

"Shelly's Stocking Goes Missing" by Anitha Rathod is a wonderful book to read to children for the Christmas holidays. It's about a little girl named Shelly who is very good with her hands and who tries to make a stocking from an old bag. Sometimes, however, unexpected things happen. Isn't it what we all experience in life? Just when we think we have accomplished a task, something happens that make us feel a though everything we have ever done was for nothing.

It's the same way with this story. No

There is hustle/bustle in the streets last minute Christmas shopping.
Shelly plan’s on designing/making a Christmas stocking.
You ever wonder how the Christmas stocking gets filled?
Now Shelly is going to wait up & meet Santa Claus.

What happens next?

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one.

A very awesome book cover, great colored pic

This year I didn't get chocolate advent calendars for my kids I went with a book advent calendar and this book was the one for December 11th.

I just read this with my five year old son and two year old daughter.

"Shelly's Stocking Goes Missing" is a wonderful book to read to children for the Christmas holidays. This is one of my kids favourite christmas reads so far this year. I highly recommend this for parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren who want to share something fun for the holi

Shelly's Stocking Goes Missing is a very simple and pleasant story of how Shelly makes a stocking for Christmas hoping to receive her present in it. The story is very simple and narrated in poetry form. The author show the reader that Shelly is resourceful and creative as she figures out how to convert a shopping bag into a stocking and decorate it. The pictures are well done and will ensure that children are drawn in to the story. It is quite an enjoyable read for little kids! ...more

My version of this Kindle was so badly represented that you could hardly read it and seemed that there were pages missing but the one reviewer had the story in it --- and I enjoyed it and if the pictures were bigger and you could see them, would be a great read! Even at full screen, the book wasn’t all there and pictures were way too tiny!

A wonderful and very well illustrated book for children. The illustrations and story by this brilliant author show her excellent ability to relate to and capture young minds in her own unique way with a little mystery about Shelly's stocking. We highly recommend this intriguing children's book. It is a great introduction to your child to the story and reading world! ...more
Could be better

The pictures are very pretty, however, most if the rhymes do not make sense.

Sometimes it rhymes, others it doesn't, with no clear consistent meter throughout, which was disappointing.

There are so many Christmas stories out there. I have never heard of one, like this one, that talks about and animates the classic Christmas stocking. Fun and unique idea!
