More Fun Christmas Books

December 12, 2010

Frosty the Snowman
written by Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins, illustrated by Richard LaPierre & Ralanna Forbis
Hallmark Gift Books, 2010
Recordable Picture Book

My kids think this book is hilarious — mostly because they like recording themselves singing or reading the words in funny voices. I’m sure that Hallmark designed this for a parent or grandparent to record which would be equally fun, especially for families who are separated by distance.

Little Critter’s The Night Before Christmas
written and illustrated by Mercer Mayer
Sterling, 1992
picture book and CD

Almost the same as the original Night Before Christmas, the Little Critter version is cuter and easier to understand. Plus, if you’re like me, you think Little Critter is about the cutest dude ever and Mercer Mayer’s illustrations are colorful candy to the eyes.

Jingle-Jingle
written and illustrated by Nicola Smee
Sterling, 2010
board book

Cat and Dog and Pig and Duck and Mr. Horse sleigh ride and sleigh slide in this festive Christmas story. Nice use of repetition and sound words to engage young readers.
