Mandie and Joe's Christmas Surprise by Lois Gladys Leppard {Book Review}

~ Description 
When she finds herself in charge of the Christmas Eve skit, Mandie, with Joe's help, tries to remind everyone of the holiday's true meaning by secretly gathering all the town's orphans and giving them parts in the play as well as a home in the church basement.

~ My Review 

Ahh, such a sweet story! 

I had read this little books several years ago when I read the entire 42-book Mandie series, and I re-read it last month with my reading buddy. It was really sweet! :) And Lisa. *laughs* Oh, Lisa. ;D

It's not a favorite of mine among the Mandie books (not a lot of mystery, here... xD), but still so good! Lots of Mandie/Joe moments for my fellow shippers out there, and the true reason of Christmas shows through very well. <3 

This book would be good for any age, whether you're a long-time Mandie fan or new to the series. A sweet lil' Christmas story!
