Merry Christmas, Little One

Merry Christmas, Little One. (Board book). Sandra Magsamen. 2010/2018. Scholastic. 10 page. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Christmas comes but once a year, a time for magic, love, and cheer!

Premise/plot: Merry Christmas, Little One is a holiday-themed board book for little ones. It features a puffy fabric tree on the cover. Inside there are plenty of flaps to lift. The text is written in rhyme. It stars a couple of snowmen.

My thoughts: If this one didn't feature a soft, squishy tree....what would I think of it? I'm not sure sure. I'm just glad it does. Board books don't have to be great literature with amazing text and incredible illustrations to offer an opportunity to bond with your little one. This board book is a cozy size. I'm not sure how durable the flaps will prove over time, but it's not like a Christmas book will be read every day right?! Well, at least not so long as Elmo can be prevented from wishing for Christmas every day.
