This sweet story about animal parents and children reminds readers of the best part of Christmas—sharing beautiful songs, special stories, fun games, and favorite treats with the ones we love most, big and small.
Skating on a frozen pond, decorating the fanciest gingerbread house ever, rereading a favorite story . . . these activities and more are brought to life through a variety of animal pairs. The tastes, smells, sights, and sounds of the holiday are evoked in universal scenes showing special moments being shared by parent and child. Adults will appreciate the theme of passing on traditions and the message that it doesn't take a lot of stuff to celebrate Christmas. Kids will enjoy the playful, loving scenes. Sharing this book could become a brand new family tradition!
