Yuletide Ice Cube Fair is a holiday book that tells a story about the veggies hosting a special fair celebrating Christmas.

It was originally released in 2003 and later re-released in 2014.


It’s that wonderful time of year again -- the Yuletide Ice Cube Fair! It’s a time of festivity and fun as veggies gather to munch on snow cones, slurp down Slushies, and ice skate on the frozen pond. But the greatest part of all is the Ice Cube Carving Contest.

The veggies have been busy. They’ve carved Christmas feasts, trees, angels, and more. Each one is trying to outdo the other in an effort to win the grand prize! But the smallest of all these ice entries is a carving done by Junior Asparagus -- a tiny stable with a shepherd on one knee. Kids will discover that it’s not what’s grand, or bigger, or best that’s most important on Christmas. Christmas is all about Jesus.
