It's that wonderful time of year again---the Yuletide Ice Cube Fair! It's a time of festivity and fun as veggies gather to munch on snow cones, slurp down slushies, and ice skate on the frozen pond. But the greatest part of all is the Ice Cube Carving Contest! The veggies have been busy! They've carved Christmas feasts, trees, angels, and more. Each one is trying to outdo the other in an effort to win the grand prize! But the smallest of all these ice entries is a carving done by Junior Asparagus---a tiny stable with a shepherd on one knee. Kids will discover that it's not what's grand, or bigger, or best that's most important on Christmas---it's Jesus!
Now in the affordable 8x8 softcover format with the addition of a sheet of full-color stickers, this Veggie tale book is sure to become a holiday favorite for young readers and their families.

- Review by Penny
“Yuletide Ice Cube Fair” is a Veggie Tales children’s picture book written by Karen Poth. Its illustrations were done by Ron Eddy and Robert Vann. I believe that children love to see the characters as vegetables…which will make them sit to listen to or read this book. Also, the rhythm and rhyme holds little ones’ attention.
This book is precious! The Veggie Tales are having an ice carving contest about what Christmas means to them. There was a feast, a grand prize, a MALL, Santa and his reindeer, even a multitude of angels. But, my favorite was Junior’s nativity scene. What a precious way to tell the Christmas story!!
I DEFINITELY recommend this book!!
