Book Review ~ Christmas 2

We have a Christmas library.  Some books are the ones I grew up reading, some are books that I found while teaching preschool, some are brand new.  Here are 3 of the books I wait all year to bring out.

Claude the Dog

By Dick Gackenbach

Claude the Dog is from my childhood.  The story is so simple.  The pictures are so simple.  And the message, that love is the best Christmas gift, is clear.  I will continue to read it to my kids and I suspect this will be one that my kids will read to their kids.

Bear Stays Up for Christmas

By Karma Wilson   Illustrated by Jane Chapman

Bear is such a fun character.  In this one, Bear’s friends want nothing more than for him to join into their Christmas celebration.  Bear wants to enjoy his friends, but he is so tired.  Will he make it to Christmas day?  You’ll have to read it to find out!

Mouse’s First Christmas

By Lauren Thompson    Illustrated by Buket Erdogan

One of my favorite things about this book is the way the words and pictures leave a little room for guessing.  What is Mouse finding as he explores the house on Christmas Eve? Santa even stops by with a little something to tell Mouse.

I’m always looking for a great new book, so email me your favorites.  Once I’ve had time to find them at the library, I’ll read them and pass the word along!


About Jillian

I love to create. I have tried many different mediums; sewing, cake decorating and storytelling are some of my very favorites. I have been a stay at home mom for 5 years (with a brief part time job somewhere in there.) Before I became a Mommy, I was co owner and teacher of a home family child care. I plan to jump right back into teaching preschool as soon as my kids are in school.
