She then decides to finish it off with a peppermint cane but hears Santa coming so she whistles and out comes Santa's sleigh all packed and ready to go.
Eating the reindeer bothered my girl for a moment so be aware. However, if you make fun of it (as I did). The Reindeer are dressed in WWI pilot gear so it's easy.
The story rhymes well so you can get a good rhythm going.
The art is well done to the point of a little goofy so children should like it.
We are going to look into the old woman who swallowed a bat next
This is the Christmas version. She swallows bells and holly and stuff and coughs of Christmas, basically.
There is nothing overly redeeming about it. It's got no moral or message or any educational value whatsoever. But it's a fun bedtime book for kids. And there is nothing wrong with a book that's just fun! Anything that encourages kids to read is a good thing!!!
The illustrations are colorful and match the text perfectly. (Oddly I've noticed that's not always the case on kids' books lately. Sometimes the illustrations don't match the story well.)
Overall it's a nice story.
I actually bought this book because it was cheaper than the original and I don't regret it one bit. The pictures are fun and colorful (though the lady is a little creepy in my opinion!)
I would totally recommend this to anyone looking to add a fun book to their holiday book collection. (Although, we read this year round!)
To add, when I read this book to my daughter, I actually sing it instead. It's got a great rhythm and my daughter and I both have it memorized so we can sing it without even having the book in hand.
