“This sturdy board book has a Christmas scene depicted on each double page spread - a snowman and a robin; a decorated Christmas tree; angels singing; Santa's arrival; stockings crammed with presents - all delightfully illustrated with detailed collage pictures made from felt, knitting, ribbons, buttons, lace and twinkly foil. A baby will find it easy to turn the pages using the robust die-cut tabs on each page. The accompanying CD has the music for 16 carols.”
