The Christmas Lesson: Unwrapping Love and Family by Dedrick L Moone is a children's adventure story. Lamar is a mischievous little boy who lives in Greensboro. The one thing he loves more than anything else in the world is Christmas: the smell of cookies baking, the lights twinkling on the trees, and the happiness he feels everywhere. But what he really loves is hunting for his presents. His mom knew how to hide his gifts, giving Lamar a real challenge every year. One Christmas, he overheard a conversation about his gift, but he got more than he bargained for when he went hunting for it. After a heart-to-heart with his Granny Mae, he finally realized that Christmas isn't about gifts but the joy of family and love.

The Christmas Lesson: Unwrapping Love and Family by Dedrick L Moone is a lovely kids' story with some amazing illustrations, full of color and light. The story is loosely based on the author's childhood, and it shows children that, while it's nice to receive presents at Christmas, it's about much more than that. It's about being together with people who love you, sharing stories, and sharing joy with others. With the holidays nearly upon us, this is a great story for parents and grandparents to read to kids. It's a lesson in learning to accept what you have and not be greedy for more, and it's a lesson in appreciating the love you and your family have for each other because that's what makes the day so special. A wonderful story that should be in every child's library.

This book is amazing. The main character is curious, but cute. This is a perfect Christmas read with and for children. It will even bring back the spirit of Christmas for adults.
