Simon, Matthew, Peter and John are the Buckley boys, and their mom is expecting another baby and wants a girl very badly. It’s Christmas time, and as always, the boys have quite a rivalry to be the first to get the Christmas catalog. Apparently, whoever gets the catalog first gets the best presents.Their biggest problem is the Hagbarts. They are the bullies on the bus and at school. Everyone tries not to have eye contact with them, or that person becomes the subject of the oldest Hagbart brother, Finn’s mean attitude. Matthew is tired of being bullied. He tries to protect his brothers — including Simon, who is older. But when mom tells the boys who the family will be “elfing” this year, the boys can not believe their ears. Of all the families, she picked the Hagbarts. “The Christmas Project” is charming and, at times, comical. It’s a Christmas tale about loving others, even if they are the enemy. We are proud to award it the Dove Family Seal for all ages.
