A “Mom’s Choice Award Winner”!
Tip toe, tip toe, crackle, crunch!
Chipper the Fox sneaks through the forest to spread cheer to his weary friends. Will his merry making be a success? Or will a smelly fish disaster and a log pile tumble ruin his plans?
“Chipper Makes Merry” takes you on Chipper’s arctic quest filled with lessons of love, kindness and determination.
My Thoughts: In this sweet Christmas story, Chipper the Fox sparks joy during the holiday season by helping friends who are in need. Each charmingly illustrated scene shows Chipper trying hard to help his friends, but not always accomplishing the tasks with perfect results. But Chipper won’t give up and learns a lovely lesson about caring and friendship.
Chipper Makes Merry is based on the author’s own holiday tradition of spreading cheer to those in need and coming together to celebrate the community spirit around the holidays before focusing on gifts. What a wonderful tradition to spread joy and kindness at this special time of year. The story reminds us that we don’t have to do big things or perfect things to make a difference in someone’s life.
Chipper Makes Merry is a wonderful story, beautifully illustrated that is a lovely opening for discussing the meaning of the holidays. Plus, it takes place in a crisp, wintry forest, setting the perfect tone for the holidays and the adventures for Chipper the Fox.
Morgan is a fun wife, and imperfect mom of 3 crazy kiddos and 2 little lemon (problematic) dogs. She tries to live her strengths the best she can. She likes to say she is creative, not crafty. Morgan is a homemade Halloween costume type of mom. She lets her kids mix the play doh. She bakes fun birthday cakes (cutely, but far from perfection). She loves a homemade valentine and a school project. Chipper the Fox is an extension of Morgan’s creative strength. Originally designed as character to create merry during the holiday season, Chipper has grown and developed into a story of determination and love.
