About the Book
Six-year-old Alice would rather get toys than a book any day. But when her grandfather explains that this book is different, Alice begins to see why their first-edition Book of Mormon is so special to her family. Set in the early 1900s, this charming story is the perfect picture book to read with your family as you gather round the Christmas tree.

About the Illustrator
Alexa Terry Hanson is a true-blue California girl born in Chico, California. She discovered her talents at a young age, and as the years went by, her skills continued to develop. After a few years of college, she returned home and fell in love with her husband. They currently live in California, where she has had many experiences and opportunities as a freelance artist with companies such as TOMS Shoes and Disney Television Animation Studios. Every day she continues to create new characters and new worlds using her artistic talents, and she could not be happier.
Toys and books are lots of fun, but when it comes down to it, the true meaning of Christmas is what matters most. In their story for children, Papa’s Book of Mormon Christmas, author Emma Rae Parker portrays a beautiful and fun story of how a father teaches his child. Illustrator Alexa Terry Hanson enhances the story by adding her delightful and fun artwork too. I would recommend this captivating picture book to children and youth alike and any parent to use as a teaching opportunity.
