REVIEW | The Forgotten Ornament – “a very sweet story”

From Cheryl Jackson

The Forgotten Ornament by Erik Daniel Shein

The Forgotten OrnamentThis is a very sweet story about a broken ornament that gets looked over for the Christmas tree. After making a special wish, the bear ornament gets a wonderful surprise for Christmas.

I read this to my students as part of a class project. I teach kindergarten and the students enjoyed the story very much. We were able to take home stuffed animals that we used to decorate our tree at the school. This project objective focused on helping the students understand the responsibility of taking care of animals. The students each received a book of their own to take home during the holidays to share with their families during the Holiday Season. Thanks to all involved for helping spread the importance of reading among children everywhere!

Test Animation | The Forgotten Ornament – planned for the 2012 Holiday Season

This is a test video (it’s compressed so a bit rough) for planning of an animated special for the 2012 Holiday Season based on The Forgotten Ornament.

This Christmas tale tells the the story of Willie Bear, a broken ornament who can’t participate in a magical event where all of the intact ornaments acquire the ability to speak at midnight on Christmas Eve. Willy is eventually placed on the tree, and he shares with other ornaments a wonderful connection. He helps them fulfill their wishes, as each receives a special gift for the Holiday.

From Jan & Mickey Rooney:

Mickey and I both are proud to be a part of “The Forgotten Ornament”… We highly recommend this wonderful book written by Erik Daniel Shein.

A beautiful Christmas book, bringing adorable animals to life. One broken little ornament is sadly neglected…. then mended and placed in a prominent position, high on the Christmas tree… and loved just as much as the newer ornaments.

This amazing book teaches children about responsibility… and the importance of protecting their pets, all animals and wildlife.

Beautiful Illustrations.. with colorful pages and a wonderful Christmas story to delight even adults.

For those who value and care about the welfare of God’s critters and special creatures. “The Forgotten Ornament”… is a must read for children of all ages.
