One Snowy Day

I think that one of my favorite things about receiving Tiger Tales Fall releases is to open the box and see what Christmas titles they are coming out with! I've just thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas holiday themed children's books and Fall 2010 did not disappoint! This year I opened the box to discover a few books that I wanted to share with you - one that was perfect for Bookworm1 (age 4) and one that was perfect for Bookworm2 (age 1 3/4).

First up, there's One Snowy Day which is a padded board book (making it just the right fit for Bookworm2!) This short and cute book features a penguin and encourages counting skills. We count "1 woolly hat, 2 warm mittens, 3 happy friends" and so on and so forth. The illustrations by Hannah Wood are cute and cozy. I also love the fact that the snowflakes are a metallic silver so they shine on each page giving the winter scene a fun appearance. Definitely a winner of a book in this house!

Secondly, we discovered 'Twas the Night Before Christmas in our box of Tiger Tales goodies. Honestly, I can't tell you who enjoyed this book more - Mommy or Bookworm1. It's a toss up. So let me tell you why I absolutely love it!

You know how each year I rave about A Magical Christmas (linked to past references!) because each page has sparkles on it?! Well, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas follows in kind with cute little mice and glittery snow drifts, swirls around flying reindeer and on decorated Christmas trees. (I'm a sucker for the glitter and sparkles, I guess!) Kat Whelan provides the illustrations in this book which follows the traditional poem. Cute, cute, cute! And it's cute. Just wanted to make sure I mentioned that!

This book is fun to look at, fun to read and I'm so happy to add it to our collection. It's a great new addition to the Tiger Tales line-up and it has our enthusiastic recommendation behind it. (It would be a great gift alongside A Magical Christmas which is also, coincidentally, a Tiger Tales book. Just sayin'.)

Now, as delighted as I am to have added these two books to our Christmas reading repertoire, I am also excited to giveaway a copy of each of the above mentioned titles to one of you. Tiger Tales has graciously and generously offered a copy of each to one of my readers here. In order to win simply leave a comment below. This contest will be open through Thursday, November 18th.

If you are a regular reader, subscriber or follower of Reading to Know, please feel free to leave an extra comment. (That's my extra little gift to those of you who are around here more frequently!)


THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER, as selected by random.org, IS #30 - SKY! Congrats, Sky!



May I dare to wish you an early Merry Christmas (again and again and again)?!!? ;)

Thanks for the opportunity :). I am continuing to build our Christmas book collection. My family had a tradition of getting a new Christmas picture book every year when I was growing up and I have continued it with my family. I am also slowing picking up the books that we had growing up as well and getting some board books to have for my daugher (and future kids that come along).

I'm in the Christmas mood quite early this year too. I don't think it's a bad thing as most years it feels like Christmas is over before I really get a chance to enjoy it!

Krista said...
