This charming book begins with Crystal, a little angel, who wanted nothing more than help around Heaven, but all of the other angels told her she was too young to help and suggested she just go and play.  Saddened, she sits upon some stairs to cry because all she wanted to do was help in some way.  Little did she know that she had a very important job waiting for her and what an important job it was!

Crystal The Christmas Angel was such a delightful read and the illustrations were quite lovely.  This is a heart-warming story that will appeal to any child and with the cute pictures, will keep them engaged throughout. 

Overall, this was a quick, sweet read with a great message and is the perfect book to read to your child not only at Christmas, but anytime of the year.
