12 Days Review: Home For Christmas by Jan Brett


One of the best places for a cup of tea and relaxation? Home of course!
Another wonderful read by Jan Brett. In this book we meet the young Troll Rollo who has not wanted to do any of his chores lately. Rollo leaves his bed unmaid and doesnt help his sister with the farm animals.
In fact Rollo has decided to leave his family and their rules forever. As Rollo travels the land trying to find a home with Owls, Bears, Otters and a herd of Moose. As Winter comes Rollo begins to miss his warm house and his fanily.Rollo comes full circle on Christmas Eve returning home to a very excited family.
I'm in love with Jan Brett's art! It has such vibrancy and life. Every aspect of this story is a joy and it has a wonderful lesson about responsibility. Such a great read.

Rollo sounds like a normal kid. There's nothing like a journey to make you appreciate home all the more.

I love the moose on the cover or is it a reindeer?
