Review: This book is absolutely adorable. I ordered this book for my nephew for Christmas and I am really excited to see his face when he reads it. I loved it myself so I know a child will just adore it.
The pictures are captivating and very well done. They make the story even better. I love that you get to count so many different Christmas themed objects.
I love the durability of the board book. Most little kids I know love to chew on the pages and the books get tossed around a lot. I feel a lot better gifting something durable like this to the younger ones.
I love that faith is sprinkled in this as well. Counting God’s creatures is a wonderful way to incorporate learning, faith, and fun all together. It’s never too early to start teaching them the important things in life.
