Enchanted Snowflakesindex2

In just a few short weeks, it will be Christmas. Every year, Chloe and her mommy and daddy go to a special gift store to do some shopping. It is an important tradition! The store is the place they go to pick out their yearly Christmas ornament, and it makes you feel like you are in a Christmas story yourself! This is no ordinary shopping trip.

Back at home, something magical happens to a box of Christmas ornaments when the full, bright December moon mixes with a magical snowfall. The ornaments come to life and start talking to each other. One of the ornaments learns a valuable lesson about bullying, and all of them learn about being respectful to each other.

With colorful illustrations, Enchanted Snowflakes narrates a Christmas story in which everyone learns about the gift of friendship and that everyone is important-everyone matters.
