Elena decides to host one big Navidad celebration in the park so everyone can celebrate together. But each community is trying to prove that their traditions are the best. Can Elena help her subjects see what the holidays are really about?

Based on the Elena of Avalor episode, "Navidad", this book is a fantastic Christmas story. Princess Elena knows that gifts aren't what make the holiday season special, it's being with family and friends, and doing nice things for others. When things don't go as planned for the towns people, she's the example the people of her kingdom need. She reminds them about the importance of the holiday season. With bright, colorful illustrations, this is a wonderful book to have, especially for young Disney Princess fans who have already seen the episode. We love Princess Elena. We really enjoyed this read and it's message.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
