Hale, Rachael. 2008. Santa Paws.
Here's another holiday-related board book for you. Santa Paws. A bit gimmicky, yes, but for animal-lovers, it may hold a certain appeal. We've got animals--cats and dogs--all dressed up and posed for the Christmas season. The illustrations are photographs. And the text accompanying the pictures does rhyme. It's not got a great narrative to it. There isn't a cohesive story to the book. But each spread of this board book features a few rhyming lines.
Or how about this one...
For families who love animals, whose pets are genuinely members of their family along with babies or toddlers, I could see this one maybe working.
