So today I read a few Christmas picture books I wanted to share.
When I Love You At Christmas
Illustrations by Tamsin Ainslie
As a child prepares for Christmas – smudging her nose with the cake mix, tangling the strings as she wraps the gifts, singing carols out of tune – a favourite toy watches on and reflects on how much it adores its beloved owner.
Cute story even cuter illustrations!
The Christmas Quiet Book
Illustrations by Renata Liwska
The holidays are filled with joyful noise. But Christmas is sometimes wrapped in quiet: “Searching for presents quiet,” “Getting caught quiet,” and “Hoping for a snow day quiet.” Irresistibly cute, soft colored pencil illustrations of bunnies, bears, and more paint a magical holiday picture indeed.
This one didn’t really feel like a complete story, rather just a list of quiet things.
The illustrations are really what brought it to life!
Pete the Cat Saves Christmas
Illustrations by James Dean
In this rockin’ new spin on the traditional tale “The Night Before Christmas,” Pete the Cat proves that giving your all in the spirit of Christmas is the totally groovy thing to do.
I didn’t think I was going to love this one as much as I did. Very fun book!
