Deborah Newton wanted to present a new view of Christmas for children. This objective prompted her to write “The House That Nick Built” (published by AuthorHouse), a cumulative tale with a rhythmic pattern similar to a book titled “The House That Jack Built” by Mother Goose, a classic from many years ago.
The book tells the story of Christmas activity at the North Pole and beyond so vividly that children feel a part of the action. The rhythm and the repetition makes the book a great way to teach word recognition and a fun read for young and old alike.
“Children two to six will enjoy ‘reading’ this book with a parent or a grandparent. Kids seven to one hundred will just love reading it over and over,” Newton says. “The rhythm will appeal to all readers while the repetition will challenge them as one verse builds upon another. This is a new kind of Christmas story that will be a great read for all.”
“The giving and receiving of gifts at Christmas is one tradition that has not been altered by our society and its changing values. This is why I celebrate it in my book.”
