PreS-K–The kids from 10 Trick-or-Treaters (Knopf, 2005) are ready to trim a tree in their building's lobby. The youngsters dress for the occasion; each roundheaded child is adorned with a halo, antlers, or red-and-white stripes, placing corresponding ornaments on the tree (three little angels, five reindeer, eight candy canes). Nine menorah candles “mark the gift of light” on the mantle, and they all go caroling when their job is done. A one-page summary of the ornaments and appropriate numerals appear at the end, prompting beginning counters to turn back the pages and count some more.Joanna K. Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Library
