This was new to our collection last year. Aren’t you just in love with the cover?
The inside is just as delightful.
This is another one that I’ve probably had since its original 1988 publication. Super-predictable, no dramatic twists, it is the epitome of a “quiet book.”
And my 5yo loves it.
Both my children are Jan Brett fans. We have a few of the board book versions for my 3yo. Both kiddos particularly enjoy the extra details in the illustration frames.
The inside cover of this book has my maiden name written in it, in my own 7 or 8yo hand.
There are a bajillion versions of Frosty the Snowman out there. But for me, this is always the book and illustrator that comes to mind for me.
The version we have is from my childhood. I also have this version, from my mom’s childhood, hidden away until little hands are a bit more gentler (its binding is so worn that it’s falling off):
The final Santa Mouse book. Ours is an original copy. I think the book is out-of-print, though you can still find a copy online.
Book #2 in our Santa Mouse trilogy.
Tonight’s pick is the first in a trilogy. We read the books one after the other for three nights every year.
Santa Mouse first appeared in 1966, and he can be harder to find some years, but he’s still around!
Anybody remember him?
So excited for the kids to unwrap this one tonight! It’s one of our new books this year.
