Advent Stories Day #25: Merry Christmas Little One

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!
We finally made it to Christmas! I hope you are all having a wonderful day with your loved ones!

Synopsis: "Christmas comes but once a year -
Time for magic, love and cheer.

Featuring sturdy lift-the-flaps, a puffy fabric Christmas tree on the cover, and a glittery finale, this newest addition to the Snuggle-Me Stories line follows in the best-selling tradition of Peek-a-Boo, I Love You! Sandra Magsamen celebrates Christmas in her signature style, with heartfelt rhymes and engaging illustrations. Babies and loved ones will merrily read and play along. A perfect way for little ones to celebrate the holiday season"

My Review: I enjoyed the simple rhyming of this book and Munchkin liked the bright images. He really liked the little puffy fabric tree on the front, the texture difference really caught his attention. While the description says the lift flaps are sturdy, I didn't find them to be so, they bent easily and with how Munchkin is still learning his coordination he could rip a flap off.        
My Rating: I give this book a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
