The Twelve Books of Christmas (at least in our house!) - Book 7

Oh my, do we ever need our mittens these days! Ever since reading "The Snowy Day" ... the snow ... and ice ... haven't stopped!

This adorable book, targeted at the preschool age group, is a delight to read, and the pictures are so wonderfully charming.

On each page, children (and adults too ... go ahead ... feel the mittens) can feel the little boy's velvety red mittens, as he experiences the joys of winter ... catching snowflakes, throwing snowballs, licking icicles, and making a snowman.

And on the last oh-so-cozy page ... a picture of the little boy (with requisite steaming hot chocolate in hand), his red mittens, and his snoozing kitty warming by the fire.

A short, sweet, perfectly cheerful book! Enjoy!

PJ ... yes, and those red mittens are SO much cuter than my plain black go-with-everything mittens! :-)

Red mittens, a very festive, homey and traditional image. I love it!

Hope you're well Kelly!!! Stay warm!

Thank you, Susan, for your kind wishes ... staying warm has become quite the challenge these days as we dig out of snow and ice on a daily basis! But it is SO beautiful!
