What's Christmas got to do with spiders you ask?
Well, our Elves said the same thing when we were approached by Author Erin Rafanello regarding her new Christmas children's book "Earl: The Christmas Spider".

Erin Rafanello Ferguson wrote this story about little Earl after becoming frustrated with the furry spiders that invaded her home when she cut down a living Christmas tree from a Christmas tree farm. She was shocked, but after a few years of having the same issue, she decided she didn't want herself or her family to be afraid of them any longer. She decided to name one of the spiders Earl, and her family giggled about him all throughout the Christmas season. A story was born and a tradition of accepting the spiders was found in Earl: The Christmas Tree Spider. This story takes you through Earl's journey from the forest to a loving home he gets to call his own. With Christmas cheer throughout, and even Santa Claus, this book brings the warmth of the season home to its readers.

So what did our mini Elf think?

As usual (and like any good elf), we suited up in our finest Christmas jammies and sat down for a light afternoon read, complete with hot cocoa!  This story did not disappoint! A delightful tale of a little Christmas spider enchanted our little reader with bright colored images that capture this truly adorable Christmas tale.
