I purchased the book to give to my youngest daughter (who is 18 months old) as a "kick-off" of the holidays. Each of my girls received Christmas pajamas and a book. Here is little Miss J opening up her holiday selection.
Even though the publisher recommends this book for ages 3 and up, I knew it would be a huge hit with my toddler because she loves anything that involves pressing buttons. Another reason I choose this book is because she absolutely adores dancing to music. Also, it is filled with adorable animal characters, and there is something to be said for how little kids completely connect with animal characters.
The Little Children's Christmas Music Book is a delightful adventure through the woods where the reader follows Mole, Rabbit, Bear, Squirrel, Mrs. Badger, and Fox as they rehearse for their Christmas concert. The illustrations in this book are jolly and inviting, with holly and Christmas decorations peppered throughout. You cannot help but be put in the Christmas spirit by the time you reach the end of the book. After you hear each of the adorable animals practice their individual parts, the story ends with all five parts being played together to create the perfect holiday song.
I could go on and on about how sweet this book would be to watch your child open up on Christmas morning; however I think Little Miss J does a much better job selling the book. Check out her "review" I recorded the other night. She really loves the glockenspiel that the Mole plays the best.
She obviously liked something in the book.
