Joyful Moments of Holiday Chaos
I am a firm believer that an excellent children's book is enjoyable by adults. And if you enjoy a good chuckle or laugh, then Fallon's holiday picture book is for you AND for your kiddo. Children take their cues from us -- when we laugh they will take note and look for why this book has Mom or Dad chuckling. The rhyming text is true to Fallon's humor - just a bit over the top for me - which is obviously a big hit. But the joyful illustrations of moments of holiday chaos bring out my smiles - really, who hasn't had a pet eat too many candy canes or play with the decorations?!
Life is an adventure and learning to navigate the wait for a special holiday is essential for any good traveler! And it's a life-habit which is useful along the whole journey.
