Treat yourselves and your loved ones for the upcoming Christmas with a Christmas tale for the ages with R.J. Amezcua's A Femich Christmas. Complemented by some enchanting illustrations by Rabindra Nath Barman, transport yourselves to the magical land of Femich, where Santa and his helpers prepare gifts for all. This season, however, there is brewing resentment between the villages of Hopy and Kiko, both of whom suspect the other of sabotaging their Christmas. Now, it is up to young Sheribelle -- assigned by the Queen of the Dalimixies -- to embark on a quest to restore the Heart of Christmas. With the Blue Star as her guide, Sheribelle sets out in her sled and lands in the snow-covered Nabba Forest, where she meets a small boy named Sammy from the Kiko village. Together, the two children must revive the Christmas spirit.
Christmas is a time for joy, love, and empathy. Author R.J. Amezcua captures its very essence in A Femich Christmas. With two charming youngsters as the main protagonists, this children's picture book showcases what Christmas is all about. It is not a season for petty squabbles or rivalries but a time to share happiness and joy between friends, family, and even people you may think of as 'others.' Sheribelle and Sammy achieve what the adults of their respective villages could not, solving their people's misunderstandings and spreading love and understanding all around. Even though this is primarily a children's book, I think even adults can learn something from the adventures of Sheribelle and Sammy.
