Kidzworld reviews When Santa Fell to Earth by Cornelia Funke, On Christmas Eve by Ann M. Martin, and The Last Holiday Concert by Andrew Clements.

Need a good book to curl up on the couch with this Christmas? Check out the following three holiday reads to help you out!

When Santa Fell to Earth

Author: Cornelia Funke

Thanks to an evil man named Goblynch (do names get any more evil than that?), Christmas is in danger! He's taken away the wonderful holiday and fired all the Santas (turns out there's more than one) and the elves - now they're scrubbing floors at Goblynch's palace! When one brave Santa named Niklas Goodfellow tries to escape in his sleigh, he falls out of the sky and lands on Earth in a neighborhood called Misty Close. Now, it's up to two kids named Ben and Charlotte to save Christmas. When Santa Fell To Earth is a fun read, with lots of cool illustrations. When Santa Fell to Earth Rating:5


On Christmas Eve

Author: Ann M. Martin

Do you believe in the magic of Christmas? Well Tess sure does and she's determined to meet Santa Claus up close and personal! The real one that is, not the department store one. Usually kids want Santa to bring them the Nintendo Wii or a new bike, but not Tess. All she wants is for her BFF's dad, who is sick with cancer, to be able to come home for the holidays. On Christmas Eve is a pretty sad book that'll leave you reaching for a box of Kleenex. It reads more like a journal ("On Tuesday, this happened and on Wednesday morning, I met so-and-so..."), so you'll get through it pretty quickly.
On Christmas Eve Rating:5


Angela and the Baby Jesus

Author: Frank McCourt

In Angela and the Baby Jesus, Pulitzer Prize winning author Frank McCourt tells the story of the day his mother, then six years old, stole the Baby Jesus from the church nativity to warm it up. As a child, Frank's mom would tell him this story every Christmas, and now you can join in on the tradition too. This is a short, sweet read that's sure to become a Christmas Eve favorite!
Angela and the Baby Jesus Rating:4


The Last Holiday Concert

Author: Andrew Clements

The Last Holiday Concert is the least Christmasy book of the three. It's about a sixth grader named Hart Evans, who is the most popular guy in school. He's used to getting his way with classmates and teachers, but Mr. Meinert, the chorus director, never lets him get away with anything. So what does Hart do? He shoots a rubber band at him, which lands him in big trouble. Mr. Meinert knows Hart hates choir, so as punishment, he puts him in charge of the Christmas concert! What does a little kid know about directing a concert? Pick up a copy and you'll find out!
