The list author says: "During the holidays, I add these books to our bedtime reading rotation. There's magic, humor and reminders to be thankful for the blessings of the season. Check out my other book lists for children."
"Author Sue Stainton and illustrator Eva Melhuish kept my sons, ages 6 and 4 at the time, entranced during our first bedtime reading. My sons asked me many questions over the course of the 32-page story but I was delighted not to know how the story would end. And I won't spoil the ending for you."
"My two sons, ages 6 and 4, immediately giggled at the book's cover, a drawing of Santa bouncing along on a pogo stick in his suspenders and candy cane short pants. This is a great addition to your Christmas story book collection for young readers and preschoolers."
"This is a magical book. I read it to my two sons in mid-October and said the book had a return address from the North Pole. This was their first experience with a high-quality pop-up book. I was asked to read it over and over again."
"My two sons, ages 6 and 4, helped me pick out this bedtime story book because they both love bears. Beginning December 1, Snowbear and his animal friends, Charlie the penguin, Ray the squirrel, Harry the raccoon and Tom the rabbit prepare for Christmas.
