There’s trouble at the North Pole. With Faith and Hope at perilously low levels, it looks like Christmas may have to be canceled this year. Now, Yuletide’s only chance lies with Jing Els and Hollee – the Glimmers - in THE GLIMMERS SAVE CHRISTMAS.

The situation in Christmastown is grim. All the reindeer are sick with “can’tflyitis” and in the toy workroom, the other elves are feeling dim and weak. Despite the dismal outlook, Elf Extraordinaire Roger keeps working away, making presents for girls and boys all over the world so that Santa can deliver them on time. It’s his hope and faith that brings some unexpected assistance just in time to save Christmas.

Meet the Glimmers. Glimmers are tiny beings of light that make everything good glow. When we make bad choices, our Glimmer lights fade and turn into Dimmers, but when we start making good choices again, our Glimmers will glow all the brighter. Jing Els is a Glimmer of Hope and Hollee is a Glimmer of Faith. Roger’s certainty that Santa will deliver his presents to good little girls and boys, and working feverishly to get all the toys ready, makes Jing Els and Hollee shine brilliantly. Roger’s belief also enables them to recruit other Glimmers and help Santa’s sleigh fly once more. Together, the Glimmers show that the spirit of Christmas can glow brightly even in the darkest of times.

The Glimmers books focus on virtues – truth, respect, hope, compassion – that will inspire children to make this a better world for us all. 


Christmas will be here before we know it! The Glimmer’s Save Christmas is the perfect book to read to your kiddos while enjoying the holiday season. The Glimmers is a book series, and this particular book focuses on faith and hope. 

I love that before the story starts, your kids are introduced to what Glimmers and Dimmers are. Glimmers are little beings of lights that make everything good glow, while dimmer’s make everything bad: dark and sad. If you are good and make the right choices your glimmer will be bright while if you are making the wrong choices your glimmer will fade and fade. But, don’t worry you can also get your glimmer back by making the right choices. 

I love the theme of the story; the illustrations complement the tale perfectly as well. I love how the glimmers of Compassion, Respect, Truth, and others come and help save Christmas. The book tells a cute Christmas story about how the glimmer light can always prevail and outshine the dimmers of darkness. This book makes a great addition to our Christmas book collections.
