Arthur, the Christmas Elf by Valerie Connelly Nightengale Press (2006) ISBN 1933449233 Reviewed by Beverly Pechin for Reader Views (5/06)

“Arthur, the Christmas Elf” is one of the few books you will ever say must adorn your Christmas rituals. Like curling up with “The Night Before Christmas" in front of the tree and sharing a memorable time with your kids, this book will soon become one of the favorite and most asked for in families far and wide. A cup of hot cocoa and the story of “Arthur the Christmas Elf” will make your holiday times complete for years to come.

A wonderful collection of not only a beautiful story of friends and family and the true meaning of Christmas but a beautiful way to celebrate the family event with crafting afterwards! It's not often you get two books in one!

A touching story takes place during a huge blizzard on Christmas Eve and Arthur, the Elf, rescues the true meaning of Christmas as he saves Timothy and Angie from despair. They band together to keep Christmas alive and well as Arthur and his reindeer friend, Snowflake, fly through the night delivering Christmas magic.

I'm not sure if it's more fun to read the wonderful story or later craft the fun items at the end of the book designed to help kids of all ages create their own Christmas magic! Truly a book that will become a must in any family library and resorted back to often throughout the years to come. There are few books that become classics in family tradition, but this one should be in every family's Christmas adventures!

“Arthur, the Christmas Elf” would make a wonderful inexpensive gift to a family or teacher. I couldn't imagine being any more excited than to be able to share this wonderful piece of literature with my kids year after year. Keeping family values and family times together during the holiday season will become an easy task, even for the busiest of families.


“Arthur, the Christmas Elf” is a proud winner of the 2006 Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award, the only award program to ever by honored by Disney.com.
