Book and Ornament
by James Barbato and Victoria Barbato
THE MAGIC CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT COLLECTION is much more than a book. The collection includes an heirloom quality case bound hardback, an ornament just like the one in the story, and a beautiful decorative package, suitable for making the gift of Christmas a lasting memory. A portion of all profits from this book will be given to the Marine Corps’ “Toys for Tots” program.
Christmas Eve is a dazzling, special time... especially when your family's favorite Christmas tree ornament has magic powers! On one enchanted Christmas Eve, Victoria, Joseph, and John gather around the fireplace to hear their father’s story about this favorite Christmas ornament. After their parents go to bed, the children discover the true magic of the ornament as it sweeps them from their home and directly into Santa’s workshop! On this adventure, they are instantly surrounded by toys, reindeer, and even see Santa himself. Amidst the magic and wonder of this night, the children meet a very special elf named JJ who, as it turns out, is more connected to their family’s history than they could ever have imagined…
Accompanying THE MAGIC CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT is the same beloved ornament from the book (for ages 5 and up) to fill your home with the magic of Christmas. This modern Christmas spellbinder will inspire new traditions and help you escape into a world of holiday magic!
Jim's father, Sylvester (Ziggy) Barbato, was one of nine children from an Italian immigrant family. Ziggy often told Jim that his family was too poor to afford toys for their children, but he always vowed that his children would experience the spirit of Christmas. THE MAGIC CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT is an original story created by Jim and Victoria Barbato. Writing this story allows our family to share the magic of Christmas—and all of its excitement—with yours. It’s ideal for reading aloud to children of all ages.
