The Little Red Christmas Ball, by Brian Moloney, is a sweet little chapter book. It is the perfect read-aloud for the holiday season. Part Velveteen Rabbit, part Charlotte’s Web, all wrapped up in a Christmas bow, it talks about the power of love and kindness and friendship. It’s an old fashioned nostalgic story, full of hope and cheer.
You might wonder why I read this book, since I am Jewish, don’t celebrate Christmas, and have no appropriate aged kids in my life. Honestly, it’s because Brian Moloney is a good guy and a talented writer, and these types of people deserve our support. Brian is also the author of The Kingdom of Keys, for middle grade readers, and the semi-grownup Freelance Retort blog.
