Just when everyone seems to give up all hope, the unstumpable Ava Buttons, together with her friends, discover a way to make Christmas wishes come true. Motivated by a desire to help others, Ava converts even her naughtiest friend, Rowdy Meyers, from an enthusiastic getter to a champion giver.Very Christmas won the 2016 Elite Gold Award in the holiday category.

This book is amazing. The pictures are colorful and the message is perfect. This is going to be one of our new holiday book traditions. It is on the longer side but my three and six year old did just fine listening. They loved Ava and her desire to help everyone and save Christmas. I love stories of selflessness and this is perfect for this time of year.
