Courtney Saves Christmas Review

Courtney is a peppy young penguin who just loves exploring, and is overjoyed when she receives a compass from Santa on Christmas morning. She’s so grateful for the gift, in fact, that she just needs to give Santa a great big hug and say “Thank you!” in person. The only problem is she lives in the South Pole, and Santa is all the way on the other side of the globe! With the aid of her new compass, Courtney sets off on a journey that takes her almost an entire year. By the time she reaches Santa’s workshop, the elves are in a flurry preparing for the upcoming holiday. Unfortunately, Rudolph is feeling very sick—too sick to guide the sleigh. If Courtney can’t find a way to help, Christmas will be ruined and all the children of the world will be devastated. What’s a little penguin to do?


Christmas is a special time of the year for us in our home and this book has made it even more special.

The idea of the penguin who travels all the way to the North Pole to thank Santa for her gift, reiterates the selflessness of Christmas. It teaches lessons to all.Courtney saves Christmas by making a Christmas wish so that everyone can celebrate. We read this one very often nowadays especially since Christmas is soon approaching.

Emily Chand is a great children’s author. We enjoyed the book and the illustrations are great too.

Definitely one that you should get for your children, nieces, nephews this year.
