Christmas Books: The Friendly Beasts (An Old English Christmas Carol) -Illustrated by Tomie dePaola
Anyone who knows children's books, knows the name Tomie dePaola. His timeless illustrations would fill a book all on their own, even without words. Add them to this classic Christmas carol, full of description and repetition (just right for toddlers and preschoolers!), and you have a perfect mix. If there's one book you buy this year for Christmas, let this be it.
**Although the repetitive qualities of this Christmas carol are perfect for little ones, older kids will still love this amazing book!
