    One thought on “Counting to Christmas

    1. Kathryn on said:

      Eh. A bit bland, but some kids might like the "counting" element and there are instructions for the crafts that the girl makes so young readers can do the same. (Note The cover art is the best in the book.)

    2. Alison on said:

      Eh. Might have been better if there was a different activity for every day the little girl was counting down to Christmas, but combining days for one activity like baking cookies was a little lame. My 2-year-old enjoyed it bc it counted down to Christmas, but if it weren't for his enjoyment of this book, I would have rated it a 1.5 or 2 stars.

      Every year, this book is my gentle & thoughtful reminder to break down holiday activities into happy and manageable pieces. And, of course, be generous to nature and wildlife! (Picture book!)

      I'm a fan of Nancy Tafuri's books. This one is great because it uses simple words and lovely images to show children some of the many traditions that lead up to a cozy, joy-filled Christmas day!

      A toddler book. There is some activites in the back of the book for children.

    6. Jenna on said:

      This story has elements of the holidays and is a good ay to introduc vocabulary like trimming the tree. The book has a countdown to Christmas so children can work on their counting as well. The pictures are simple, but get the point across.This book would be good to pair with the different crafts and activities from the story. one example would be coating pinecones in peanut butter and birdseed.

      This book is a great book to use for younger children. It's about a little girl who doesn't just think about Christmas and presents. She counts down the days by doing activities each day to help celebrate the holidays. I would use this book to teach children that Christmas is more than just presents and Santa and that there's many things to do to help celebrate the holidays with your family. This book is a Caldecott Honor winner.

      Think advent calendar only in book form. Days are measured by the seasonal traditions one little girl celebrates. Watercolor and ink illustrations splotlight each activity and really help build the anticipation of Christmas Day. I loved the two page spread in which just a glimpse of Santa is seen.Rounding out the book is a recipe for gingerbread cookies and craft ideas. PreK-2.

    9. Jessica on said:

      Its a great book to see numbers is numerical order. It was a kid friendly book. It would be a great book to use becuase it has some vocabulary that would be very educational for the students to know.

    10. Lari on said:

      I'd use this book as a read aloud with preschool-age children maybe in conjunction with a discussion about what they do in their families for the winter holidays. It would be a good independent reading book for a first grade room too.

    11. Maria Waltner on said:

      I was hoping for something that my four year old nephew (who is brilliant with numbers) would like but this is older and very sweet. I can't see this keeping his attention.

    12. JoDean on said:

      There are directions for crafts and a recipe at the back of the book.

    13. Sandybear76 on said:

      a simple book counting from Dec. 1 to the 25th. It will be a good for the preschoolers.

    14. K. on said:

      Great illustrations. Wonderful Christmas book and great way to incorporate learning numbers.

    15. Terry on said:

      What s/he loves quickly became tedious to us. Each page is a single sentence with a couple of verbs. It does have the right spirit, with Santa's arrival only a small part of the story's focus.

      This is a really cute book for really little kids. It's a good book to read around the Christmas season. The text is simple but the illustrations are nice.
