A Magical Christmas: A Padded Christmas Story Book

Tiger Tales. Sept. 2024. 22p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781664351349.
Baby-Toddler–A young mouse seeks to understand what makes Christmastime magical. His family members describe a variety of wintry activities and experiences in short, rhyming stanzas. For example, “‘It’s stringing the tree lights,’ says Daddy,/ ‘That twinkle and glow through the night./ It’s placing the star on top of the tree./ The magic of Christmas shines bright.’” Each spread is illustrated with a very busy scene of mice in soft pastels. Any religious aspects of the holiday are not featured and there is no mention of Santa Claus, which may appeal to some families.
VERDICT An additional purchase where secular Christmas books are in high demand.
