Christmas in Paradise by Jaime Nicole Hughes is a delightful story for children revolving around the theme of Christmas. The book takes you down Memory Lane with Jamie as she describes her wonderful childhood trips with her family to Florida during the Christmas season. The excitement of being on the beach and all her memories associated with those trips are shared with readers. The story is narrated in simple verses, many of which rhyme, making it more appealing to kids. The book also introduces young readers to new concepts and helps in improving their vocabulary.

The book is formatted in a way that will catch the attention of readers with its font and watercolor style illustrations. The pictures give movement and life to the story and make it easy for kids to relate to the events. It is a perfect book for bedtime reading and can also be used in classrooms and libraries for story telling and read-aloud sessions. The book is a combination of Christmas and travel that makes it enjoyable on more levels than one. The essence of the Christmas season is captured well. The joy, cheer and spirit of the season run through the story. The merriment of the season and the beach setting work well for the story, making it a peppy read. Children will definitely enjoy reading about Jamie’s fun-filled Christmas breaks and lovely memories.
