PreS–These attractive board books feature simple, clear concepts and delightful pencil-and-watercolor illustrations enhanced with patterned fabric swatches. Christmas demonstrates the connection between what children might see in nature and ornaments that decorate a Christmas tree such as birds, snowflakes, and stars. Hanukkah celebrates familiar aspects of the holiday such as candle lighting and playing dreidel. In both books, it is the clever illustrations with their sunny colors, charming compositions, and multicultural casts of characters that really shine, making these titles satisfying choices.–Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library END --This text refers to an alternate Board book edition.

This is a small book, printed with bright colors on heavy duty cardboard pages. The author, David Martin has a delightful idea. He starts with a single word and single picture: tree, then a bird. Then, a bird in the tree. Then, a mouse...and then a mouse in the tree and you see that the mouse in the tree is a Christmas ornament. As you read, page by page, the clever idea begins to build up and you clearly see that the BALL becomes a bright Christmas ornament. Page after page of brightly colored illustrations.
But, then you come to the picture of the "HOUSE" where red-cheeked children have pressed their faces against the window. Turning to the last page, you reach the climax of the book: the tree is in the house, and has become a glorious Christmas tree, decorated with many of the items seen on the previous pages of the book. The people sit around with hot chocolate; they are smiling and warming themselves in front of the fireplace. Some are placing more decorations on the wonderful tree, or placing presents underneath the tree.
This is a great book, just the right size for a stocking stuffer. The words and the illustrations build up into a nice Christmas story. The book would be an attractive addition to any Christmas library.
