I was so excited to see that Jan Brett had a new holiday book out for children this fall. She is such a talented author/illustrator. This book looked so cute, I even pre-ordered it.
In this story it's the first Christmas Eve for "Little Snow", and his older brother, "Big Snowshoe" tells him that the "Animal's Santa" comes tonight. He tells Little Snow that none of the other animals know who the Santa is but in the morning they always find presents like, a bell, a puzzle toy, a heart-shaped wishing stone or even a stack of acorns.
Little Snow finds this hard to believe and thinks his big brother is fooling him. As the story continues, each animal tries to imagine who Santa might be. It's now time to snuggle into their dens for the night and she what happens in the morning......No footprints in the snow? Who could Santa be? Look up above and gifts begin to fall from the sky, with a special wish from a special Santa wishing all a very Merry Christmas.
The story is special, the beautiful illustrations pure delight and each panel engages the little ones as the other animals tell about Christmas past. A keeper for your personal collection. Children and adults will love this one.
I have always been a HUGE Jan Brett fan and now that I have a child I'm happy I can read her books to him. My two year old LOVES this book. He asks for it by name every night and can almost recite the whole book from memory. Jan Brett's artwork, as usual, is stunning and amazing. The story is well written and a favorite in our household!
Love this book and anything that Jan Brett has written and illustrated. Her books are not just for children but also for the child in all of us. The stories are timeless and the illustrations are wonderfully detailed, colourful and simply exquisite.
This is a super cute Christmas book with beautiful illustrations. The animals are all trying to figure out who Santa is. None of them have ever seen him but they always get presents. I purchased this book to use in my classroom and to read with my grandson. My students really enjoyed this story. I can't wait to read it with my grandson!
