This story is an amalgamation of my first five Music Audio Stories. There are not many Christmas audiobooks for children, so I created this one!
The story is set on Christmas Eve! Santa is so busy, he has to call upon extra helpers to deliver Christmas presents. He calls upon ants! The ants set off on a winter adventure to deliver the presents, marching through various places and meeting funny characters along the way! Can the ants make it to their final destination before Christmas morning?
The audiobook includes original classical music, unique sound effects throughout the narrative, and a fantastic sing-along Christmas song at the end, featuring the whole cast of Music Audio Stories! The perfect kids' audio entertainment for Christmas!

I definitely think young children and their parents will enjoy Christmas Magic.
Dawn Heslin - Bound4Escape
Christmas Magic is a delightful story where Santa needs extra helpers to deliver some of his Christmas gifts, so he calls upon the hardworking ants to help. The animals are all reminded that Christmas is about giving rather than receiving as they each help to make sure the gifts get to those to whom Santa intended. The classical music behind this story helps to make the story come alive. It adds to the drama of the story. The actors who do the voices of the animals are extremely talented artists seen in other film and TV roles. Having different voices for each of the characters will maintain the interest and excitement of your child as s/he listens to this story. I think Anna Christina has created another winner in an audio-book for children with Christmas Magic. I give this audio story book 5 stars out of 5..

The narrator has a really soothing voice, which everyone will appreciate. It’s like liquid gold. It’s expressive and had me smiling.
