Are your kids between the ages of four and eight? Of course, you love them, but do you just need a few minutes to yourself.

LAGUNA WOODS, CA, November 25, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Especially during the holiday season, a thousand tasks are nagging at you for completion. Think how delightful it would be if you could chill for just eighteen minutes from the kids to do something else on your “to do” list.
One entertainment solution is a rollicking fun Christmas video produced by Jukie Davie of YouTube’s “Time to Tell a Tale.”  Jukie acts out the new Christmas book, “A Christmas Love Story: Nicholas Nutcracker & Brittany Ballerina” and it’s hilarious. This charming new Christmas read is about two engaging Christmas ornaments in search of their true love. And, who doesn’t love a love story?
Relax and focus on other matters while Jukie Davie entertains the kiddos with this happy holiday book reading for eighteen glorious minutes. Jukie is a jill-of-all-trades producing these animated video book readings for children. Matthew, her boyfriend, used to help her create the videos. But, remember the old proverb: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.” Over time Matthew showed Jukie how to produce her own videos. If your kids like nutcrackers, ballerinas, Christmas, and cute basset hound dogs, don’t miss this adorable short video for the holidays.

“I give this book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars and recommend it to parents who are looking for a unique Christmas story. I definitely feel like this is a story that can grow with a child and be just as enjoyable at age 12 as it is at age 5. The writing, illustrations, and editing are all impeccable.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: After watching Hallmark Christmas movies more times than she cares to admit, Maureen reached maximum “Christmas Spirit” saturation by the end of December. Inspired by cute Christmas art of a nutcracker and ballerina ornament hanging from a branch, McCabe decided to write her first children’s book about these two ornaments and give them a backstory.

In-the-works, McCabe teamed up with Clyde Adams to write the fascinating tale of “Murray Korman’s Vintage Babes of Broadway,” which features stories and never-before-seen photographs of many well-known entertainers from the 1930s to 1961. The book scheduled for release in early 2021 should attract history and photography lovers. McCabe published “Moon Over Vaudeville,” which took a nostalgic look at her father’s show business career as a tap dancer in 2011.
