Annotations for Christmastime


Baker & Taylor
A nostalgic, sumptuously illustrated celebration of the Christmas season features such scenes as a dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, a workshop filled with busy elves and Santa's sleigh being pulled by reindeer through the night sky, in a story that incorporates secret clues and hidden elements inspired by classic carols.

Illustrations and single words present different aspects of Christmas, and the pictures hide links to Christmas songs and carols.

Penguin Putnam
A cozy, visually rich celebration of Christmas to pore over

Readers are off to the North Pole in this brimming holiday treat. On each page, a deceptively simple item--stocking, snowman, reindeer--pulls readers into a nostalgic, exquisitely detailed moment of the yuletide journey: a trip in Santa's sleigh, supper with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, watching the elves hard at work, and finally arriving home in time for Christmas morning.

Secret clues, plus hidden allusions to classic Christmas carols, elevate this from a gorgeous book to an interactive holiday treasure hunt--a natural fit for the whole family at Christmastime.
