Trim the Tree Time! Under the Christmas Tree by Gabriela Climo


What tot doesn't want to "help" decorate the family Christmas tree--even before he or she can reach higher than the lowest branch?

It's a temptation to let the littlest ones get in on the holiday fun, and Gabriela Climo's little pull-the-tab board book gives toddlers and preschoolers a safe way to preview the festivities, beginning with the cover, where a slide tab allows them to brighten up the Christmas tree all by themselves, as bright lights, colorful ornaments, and a topper star pop into sight on an evergreen tree.

And there's more tab fun--putting a face on the snowman and putting a letter to Santa into its envelope, as well as moving Santa's sleigh through the nighttime sky.

And of course, when that Christmas Eve sky darkens, it's time for tots to turn off the lights in the house. And that means that it's also time for youngsters to close their eyes and sleep tight while Santa's boots come into view as they drop down the chimney.

And there are even surprises in store on Christmas morn. What's in that package? Open the box to see something fun and furry, in author-illustrator Climo's clever new little toy and movable book, Under the Christmas Tree (Sterling Books, 2017), a perfect little surprise for a favorite little one for pre-Christmas giving or a stocking stuffer for youngsters still new to the season.
