Sparkly Fun

A snowy setting, cute mice, and sparkles make these new Christmas titles just plain sweet!

Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls are large, padded board books that bring the familiar lyrics to life.    Illustrated by Veronica Vasylenko, the mice in the books tell the story of the songs.  The mouse family decorates their home in preparation for Christmas and enjoy a fun, though crowded sleigh ride.  Each book has added sparkles to the illustration which is a bonus for the reader...and little fingers who love to touch shiny things.

Both of these books have been enjoyed in our home as part of our reading at least one Christmas book a day this month.  If you want to teach a young child either song, this may be the way to do it!

I'd love to see more Christmas hymns and songs in books!  We have The Little Drummer Boy board book and love it.  Homeschooling Just Next Door shared about some other Christmas carols found in books that might interest you!

Thank you, Tiger Tales, for sending us review copies!

Hey that's so funny, I just posted about carols in books as well. These books are so sweet, and the mice are adorable. What a fun way to learn the words.
