This is a Children's Christian Book about Christmas. This book continues on another Christmas Season and the ornaments coming out of the boxes. This one is when all the ornaments are being put on the tree, this year a new ornament joins the group, Little Drummer Boy. However, it is not easy for all the old ornaments to have a new one join their family. They soon find that this ornament is as special to the Christmas story as they all are. What does the drummer boy mean? What is the purpose of this ornament along with all the others?
I would recommend this to all ages, what a wonderful story. This is a book you open and can't stop reading to the end. Would be a great book to read to children, the family and friends. This is book 2 in the series, but can be read as a stand alone.

More from Terry
This is the second book of the children’s Christmas series: Oddball Ornaments. The whole idea came to me while looking at the ornaments of my tree one year and wondering, “If they could talk to each other, what would they say?” In both books, the ornaments are alive and can hear their humans, but the humans cannot hear the ornaments talk. It was fun to write these characters and to help teach these imaginary friends lessons about Christmas and forgiveness.
To celebrate her tour, Terry is giving away the grand prize package of a $50 Amazon gift card!!
