Back of Book:
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and a mother and daughter are enjoying the sights and sounds of the holiday season. The little girl hears sleigh bells ringing and carolers singing. She smells chestnuts roasting–CRUNCH! CRUNCH! CRUNCH!–and sees the flashing lights of the department store windows–BLING! BLING! BLING! She spreads the spirit of giving wherever she goes. And when she reaches Santa, she tells him her Christmas wish–for peace and love everywhere, all the days of the year.
I received a copy a copy of this story from author Connie Schofield-Morrison in exchange for an honest review. I love that this picture book brings out the beauty of the Holiday season to life. One of my favorite aspects of this book is that is written in a first-person narrative. The young girl shares her love of holidays with the readers. Each page has a different description of the sights and sounds of the holidays. I also love the joy that the girl spreads to everyone around her. The illustrations in this book are nothing short of gorgeous! Each detail jumps off the page and draws you in. I cannot wait to share this with my class during Christmas.
