Advent Stories Day 1: One Snowy Day

Welcome to the Advent Story event I am having here on Eastern Sunset Reads this Christmas season.
Every family has their own personal Holiday traditions, and many of them include those advent calendars that have the little chocolates or toys behind each door as you count to Christmas Day. Well in my family we had a Advent Candle instead.  Each night we would light the candle and as it burned that day away we would read a special Christmas story or poem.  So I decided to bring that tradition to all of you.
Most of the books will be Children's books as I share this tradition with Munchkin for the first time, but I will also have some After Dark specials and maybe a few fiction, romance and young adult books too as time allows. I will also feature a favorite Christmas song each day.  So please join me and share some of your favorite traditions, songs and stories this holiday season!

Synopsis: "Learn to count from one to 10 with Penguin. Penguin loves snowy days. One snowy day means one woolly hat, two warm mittens, three happy friends--and lots of fun. Foil-stamped snowflakes shimmer on the cover and every page of this padded board book. Full color."
My Review: A very cute little winter counting book.  The illustrations are adorable and the counting items are simple and clear for little ones.  While the pastel colors didn't seem to catch Munchkin's attention, but he is still young, I think before too long the shining snowflakes will grab his eyes. I tend to have a little soft spot for penguins so I really liked this one.
My Rating: I give One Snowy Day a rating of Three Paws and Stump Wag. It was short, sweet and beautiful.
