PreSchool-Grade 1–An easy-reading, rhyming text highlights cheerful holiday scenes on sturdy, heavy-stock pages. A child enjoys street carolers and is anxious for Christmas to come, imagining the pleasures of the celebration at home with her family. The somewhat dark palette provides a foil for small cutout holes on every page through which twinkling lights can shine when a button is pressed. Battery replacement instructions are included on the back cover. A special treat for a preschool storytime.–Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library
