Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–Each book begins with a list of “Picture Words” related to the holiday, followed by a simple text combined with pictures to describe how people celebrate. Repetition of action words makes these books somewhat useful for beginning readers, e.g., “We hang the [lights]. We hang the [stockings].” However, as with many books for this audience, there is very little explanation of what these holidays are about aside from a minimal definition in the glossary. It is also notable that in Hanukkah, no mention is made of the oil that is central to the holiday. Large, clear photographs face each page of text. Aside from the appeal of the rebus format, these titles are merely additional.Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library

More About the Author

Hi Readers!
I fell in love with reading and storytelling in the second grade, but it wasn't until a few years later, when I wrote my first play, that I knew I'd found my life's calling (the play got decent reviews). In my career, I've been a newspaper journalist, TV news reporter and weather forecaster, freelance writer, and now I write books for kids and tweens. I write both fiction and nonfiction - nearly 100 titles, so far. In the nonfiction realm, I've covered everything from storm chasing to video gaming. In fiction, I'm the author of two series,' JULEP O'TOOLE (Penguin) and SECRETS OF A LAB RAT (Aladdin). I also write for Aladdin's tween division, M!X. STEALING POPULAR is my first release for M!X. Keep an eye out for my next MIX title, SISTER SOLUTION (Fall, 2015).

I was born and raised in Seattle, WA and still live in the Pacific Northwest with my college sweetheart/best friend/husband, Bill. I love the three c's: cats, chocolate, and cupcakes! Visit my website at

I bought this to use with my first graders. It worked well. Straight forward Christmas facts, good illustrations, and easy to read for lower levels.

Format: Library Binding
This is a great introduction to Christmas for a young child. The information on Amazon says that the reading level for this book begins at age 5 but my recommendation would be 2 years old. One of the reasons I like it for a young child is because it uses pictures in the text so the child can help out with "reading". The text is simple, with just a few words to a page, so it would also be good for an early reader. The illustrations are actual pictures of families and children enjoying Christmas. This would make a great "first" Christmas book for your child or for use in a preschool classroom. - Mama Carmody
