“Christmas comes but once a year, sometimes with pain, Sometimes with cheer. Yet through it all we can find a way, To share some gifts that special day.” These are very beautiful words expressed in Mubu’s Christmas by Stephen Nawotniak. One day Mubu and Kookoo were talking about the importance of Christmas and how they would each spend their time awaiting its arrival. Kookoo passed the time by flying high in the air and singing to everyone far and wide. She expressed her feelings about Christmas through songs. Everyone that she encountered felt uplifted in spirit. Mubu decided to stay next to the fireplace and await Santa’s arrival. As he waited and waited, looking at the fireplace, his eyelids got heavy and he became tired. As he slept, Mubu began to dream of his encounter with Santa. While Mubu waited and Kookoo flew high in the sky singing, they both got a chance to experience Santa and Christmas in their own special way.
I found Mubu’s Christmas by Stephen Nawotniak, illustrated by Jeffrey Scott Perdziak, to be a beautifully written, colorful children’s book that instills character development. As children begin to read Mubu’s Christmas, they will be able to see the importance of self-discovery. The book will help them in creating their own path by celebrating, living, and enjoying themselves in a way that suits them best. Also, getting back to the basics and getting pleasure from the holiday season is important, especially for those children who still believe in Santa Claus.
