Christmas lights are twinkling,
Candles all aglow.
Christmas cookies baking,
Stockings in a row.
Happy Birthday, Jesus.
We’ll sing and clap and cheer.
Thank you, God, for Christmas—
Our favorite time of year!

Prepare to be Delighted! Want to see one of the cutest children’s Christmas books I have ever seen? Look no further than this adorable book. Its shiny and brightly colored cover will surely catch a child’s eye, while the cushioned cover will feel really nice in little hands. But the charm of this book doesn’t stop there. The inside of the book is very appealing as it is filled with delightful illustrations by Cee Biscoe that are full of color, and are on every page--little fingers will find the thick pages easy to turn. The Christmas story is told on a child’s level with a fun rhyme that will tickle the ears of both the reader and listener alike. For instance: “Snuggle in your pj’s Around the Christmas tree, And listen to the story Of how Christmas came to be…” After reading to my children I have seen, and read, a lot of children’s books. Snuggle Time Christmas Stories is one of the nicest ones I have come across. The true Christmas story is front and center in this fun book, and this volume should be a must have for Christmas, as well as, any other time of the year. It would also make a nice gift, that will be sure to make children smile. It is a wonderful sight to look at, and read. Children are who non-readers to the lower grades in elementary school would enjoy this. I highly recommend this 5+ star book to any child in your life.
