Notes from Melody and Emily’s mom:
I love reading the Christmas story, but I like this book for the rhymes that tell the story. It was actually the first thing the girls noticed about the story when we started reading it. “Hey, it rhymes!” If your kids are familiar with the ‘Twas the night before Christmas’ poem, they will catch onto this story. The illustrations in the book are gorgeous too. They are very detailed and realistic. Any fans of the American Girl series will see that the drawings are familiar. Christine is the illustrator of the Marie Grace and Cecille series. This is sure to be one that we will read over and over each year.
