'The Three Lost Kids and the Christmas Curse' Review Blitz


Christmas everyday sounds like the best thing ever to Bella and her sisters. But when a special Wishing Stone grants her heart's desire, The Three Lost Kids discover the curse hidden in the wish.

Now they have to stop Christmas no matter what--even if that means ending up on Santa's Naughty List.

Will the girls learn the true meaning of Christmas and find a way to break the curse? Or will they be stuck in their self-created Jingle Bells Nightmare forever?


Look for the original Three Lost Kids Trilogy--Lexie World, Bella World and Maddie World--if you like enchanted Dragons, Fairies, and more adventures through magical worlds with great life lessons for kids!

**My thoughts**

I will be honest. My initial thought was, "Oh great, here is yet another story about the problems of having Christmas every day." But I still greatly enjoyed this book. Yes, the idea is not a new one, by any means. But it seems like a natural and necessary addition in The Three Lost Kids series and is well-written.

Bella is the one telling this story. She is the middle child who tends to be full of anger. and had to learn how to control it. It is her idea to make it Christmas every day. At the same time, she is the one who has to figure out how to break the curse. I like how she is shown brainstorming with her sisters and how she has to fail a few times before she is successful. Yet again, a valuable life lesson is taught to readers. This time it is to be careful for what you wish. I can see Kimberly using this story as a way to teach her own kids a lesson in real life, just as they learn one in the story. Discussion questions at the end can help to drive the message home. They make it easy for this book to be used in an educational setting or as a family.

I really do like this series a lot and have read all of the books. It's great for children as young as four or five as a read-aloud. Independent readers of all ages will also enjoy it. More stories are coming and I look forward to them!
