Book Trailer:


"This is a lovely book about friendship between two very different people from opposite cultures. It is also a tale about hope and the magic of Christmas. Children will delight in the colorful illustrations as they learn about the Oregon Trail and the pioneers, their hardships and dreams of a better life. At the end of the book there's a section with activities and information about the pilgrims, as well as a game and a map. The Christmas Angel will make a lovely Christmas gift to any child as well as an excellent tool for teachers to teach this era of American history."
--Mayra Calvani, Midwest Book Review

"The Christmas Angel is a very heartwarming story that I think not only children, but people of any age will delight in. This poignant tale not only touches the heart but allows the reader to be a part of the wonderful journey. The magnificent illustrations, along with the tender tale, are truly captivating. It is one that I know I will treasure. I can tell Ms. Kelso really put her heart into this wonderful read. I fell in love with The Christmas Angel."

"In The Christmas Angel Mary Jean Kelso writes about a girl traveling westward with her family in a wagon train. Her adventures are related in a lively, colorfully illustrated tale that brings the frontier to life for young readers."
