Mickey and I both.. are proud to be a part of "The Forgotten Ornament"...We highly recommend this wonderful book written by Erik Daniel Shein.
A beautiful Christmas book, bringing adoreable animals to life. One broken little ornament, is sadly neglected....then mended and placed in a prominent position, high on the Christmas tree..and loved just as much as the newer ornaments.
This amazing book teaches children about responsibility... and the importance of protecting their pets, all animals and wildlife.
Beautiful Illustrations.. with colorful pages and a wonderful Christmas story to delight even adults.
For those who value and care about the welfare of Gods critters and special creatures. "The Forgotten Ornament".. is a must read for children of all ages.

A Kid's Review
This review is from: The Forgotten Ornament (Paperback)
This book is about rescued animals, which we have not encountered before! My boys, ages 9 & 8, loved it. My 4 year old daughter says it's her absolute favorite book! It brings out the magic of Christmas but through the eyes of these adorable characters and has led to some amazing discussions about animals, their needs and protecting them!The Forgotten Ornament Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Sweet Story, December 18, 2011
By Mrs. Jackson - See all my reviewsThis review is from: The Forgotten Ornament (Paperback)
This is a very sweet story about a broken ornament that gets looked over for the Christmas tree. After making a special wish, the bear ornament gets a wonderful surprise for Christmas.
I read this to my students as part of a class project. I teach kindergarten and the students enjoyed the story very much. We were able to take home stuffed animals that we used to decorate our tree at the school. This project objective focused on helping the students understand the responsibility of taking care of animals. The students each received a book of their own to take home during the holidays to share with their families during the Holiday season. Thanks to all involved for helping spread the importance of reading among children everywhere!
