    1 thought on “Grace at Christmas

    1. This one was fun! I laughed when, upon reading about how Grace puts on the nativity story and plays all the characters herself, one child asks, "Mommy, is she a 'lonely' child?" From my children's perspective, "only" must be synonymous with "lonely" having never known anything but siblings! But the story was fun and we enjoyed the message of opening our hearts to those in need (even if it isn't always comfortable) and learning to have empathy for another's discomfort. We will probably read this [...]

    2. Another helpful and heartfelt story from Grace. Learning to open your family and invite others in is a hard lesson, but a wonderful one as well.

    3. Grace at Christmas by Mary HoffmanGrace at Christmas follows a series of adventures of the character ‘Grace’. Hoffman recreates the Christmas feeling through the children’s book, by exploring the importance of giving and family. Grace is used to spending Christmas with her Nana and Ma, acting out the Christmas story as she plays all the characters and even getting Nana and Ma to join in as the Three Wise Men! With Christmas being her favourite day of the year, she is not able to adjust to [...]

    6. Grace makes another appearance in one of author Mary Hoffman’s books. This time, Christmas has come around and it is one of Grace’s favorite times of the year. After hearing news that visitors will be staying with her family for the holiday makes Grace nervous. Soon she’ll find out that she couldn't have asked for a better Christmas. Having more people and new friends around made it even better. This book is a great book to share with children from first to third grade. It can show childre [...]

    7. On the 20th Anniversary of Amazing Grace, Hoffman has written a holiday addition to the series. Grace loved Christmas even more than her birthday. She loved acting out the Christmas story and spending time with her family. This year, they were going to be joined by some new people for their holiday. The granddaughter of a family friend and her daughter were going to come and stay for a bit. The daughter was just Grace’s age, but Grace was worried about having them stay. It didn’t get any bet [...]

    8. Although this book is delightful beautiful much heart behind the words, it was hard for some of my 2nd graders to handle. Two of them broke down crying over the dad not celebrating Christmas with Grace and her mother any more. It tugged at their heartstrings and became too personal for them, due to their own situations at home. Not the author's intent for sure. Still a wonderfully sweet book! I appreciated the author's purposefulness in making sure the Birth of Jesus was mentioned in this book.

    9. I loved this book. The story was wonderful. Grace was cute as a button and Nana, well, everyone wants to have a Nana like her. She was wise and gentle and loved Grace like crazy. Ma was a little one-dimensional. Maybe this book was Nana's time to shine. The Christmas part of the book was great. It spoke to the true meaning of Christmas in a very easy, unintimidating way. I like that Grace and her family went to church on Christmas morning. Then she spent the better part of the story planning and [...]

    10. Grace is back with her spunky but kind flair. It is Christmas and relatives of an old friend of Nana's need a place to stay. Anita and her daughter Savannah are coming to Grace's house for a few days. Grace tries to help Savannah feel welcome in a strange house even while Grace fells sad that she will never get to spend another Christmas with her mom and dad together. Illustrations are beautiful watercolors and capture expressions very well. An excellent addtion to the series of picture books ab [...]

    11. I feel like we keep learning the same lessons -- Grace's resistance to guests at her house feels so reminiscent of her meeting her father's family in Boundless Grace(and I don't understand (*why* she doesn't want them staying with her other than just that it had always been just the three of them).I do love this all-female all-Black Nativity scene we get.

    12. This is another book that I would use to talk about different cultures and how they celebrate Christmas.I would have students choose their favorite book from the series of holiday books that I would read and have them write about something they have in common with the story as far as celebrating the holidays. Of coarse, there will be an art project that relates to the assignment.

    13. Lovely story about family and friendship at Christmas, giving and sharing. The beautiful illustrations topped it off - loved the body language of the elder characters as they are having to join in Grace's rendition of The Nativity story with only three people - classic!

    14. Another lovely book in the series.Grace loves Christmas but not having strangers coming to stay with her family and having to share her house. But she soon discovers how nice it is to share and what amazing friendships can be made.

    15. Grace isn't too sure about having unexpected guests at Christmas time. But in true Grace fashion she finds a way to make a connection with these strangers, turning them into friends.

    16. I CANNOT get enough of Mary Hoffman's brilliant character Grace. She is lovely and genuine and a true hero. Her family is wonderful. I cannot recommend these books enough!
