About the Book
A Better December

Proverbs to Brighten Christmas

Know someone FRAZZLED this December?

Know someone SAD this holiday?

Know anyone IN THE DARK about the point of Christmas?

. . . Want to light up their tree a bit?

A Better December casts ancient King Solomon as a farsighted author who penned his famous Proverbs to coach modern people through the stress and melancholy of the Christmas holidays. With a zippy style and playful mood, Steve Estes’s little volume moves from the sage’s clever holiday tips to a gentle but compelling introduction to the One behind Christmas. It is spread with poignant, but not sappy, true stories. Pint-sized and pen-and-ink-illustrated, A Better December is intended as a book to give at Christmas.
