Ill. by Kathryn Durst. Carolrhoda Books, 2017. ISBN 9781467792615
(Age: All) Highly recommended. With a name like Mary Christmas how could you not like Christmas? The problem is Mary does not like Christmas. The whole Christmas family are especially happy at Christmas time, except poor Mary. The Christmas family do Christmas in a big way but Mary does not feel merry at all.
When the family go to visit Santa, Mary believes that Santa can make Christmas merry for her. After visiting him Mary thought a lot about what he had said. She finally had an idea of how she could make Christmas merry for everyone and with her family's help Mary Christmas finally had a Merry Christmas.
This is a great Christmas picture book for children of all ages, and I would highly recommend it.
