Pitch-perfect and utterly charming rhyming text. Eric James wonderfully captures the excitement and anticipation of Christmas Eve.
This is honestly one of my favorite children’s books. I can’t tell you how impressed I am with every aspect, from the rhymes to illustrations, plot line, etc. It’s just perfect.
I’m never sure when I pick up a regional picture book–will it be overly didactic? Will the story be forced to accommodate the geography? Well, have no fear with this one! Both the rhyme and the visual story are too stinkin’ cute!
