One great way to make your little ones happy this Holiday season as well as promote the love of reading is to give the gift of Holiday themed books. I know my toddlers love snuggling up for story time, and they also love books about Christmas. Seeing bright illustrations of Santa, Mrs. Clause, reindeer and the elves always makes them smile and helps make Christmas truly magical.
Recently, I was sent 2 fantastic new books to review, "A Bit of Applause for Mrs. Clause" by Jeannie Schick-Jacobowitz and Susie Schick-Pierce, and a book from the "Santa Is Coming to..." series by Steve Smallman.
A Bit of Applause for Mrs. Clause is a delightfully funny tale about all of the work Mrs. Clause does behind the scenes to prepare for Christmas when Santa is sick. It's really a true testament to the many things that wives and mothers do every single day and may not get the credit for!
The book is beautifully illustrated and definitely fun to read with the family. Take a look at a few of the pages. I love all of the bright, vibrant pictures!
Since we're in the North-Eastern Ohio area, naturally we received Santa Is Coming to Ohio! I love all of the local details thrown into the story. This book actually shows Ohio landmarks and mentions different attractions that kids in the Buckeye state will be able to relate to.
Take a look at just a few pages from this fun-filled tale!
