This Christmas, the Oddball Ornaments can’t wait to learn more about this special holiday. But when a new ornament is hung on the tree, they find themselves left with even more questions than before.

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.

Oddball Ornaments: The Story of Forgiveness is a great addition to Terry Overton’s Oddball Ornaments series. I thought it was a cute story to read. It is a heartwarming tale of love, hope, healing, and forgiveness. I loved it so much and enjoyed reading it with my two children. We plan to read it again and again up and until Christmas and will be keeping it in our shelf.
I am giving Oddball Ornaments: The Story of Forgiveness five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers of all ages. It would make a great addition to the annual Christmas time reading. I am hoping Terry Overton continues to release more Oddball Ornaments books in the future.
I received a paperback copy of Oddball Ornaments: The Story of Forgiveness from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
