I got this book free in exchange for a review from www.booksneeze.com. Anyway, so here goes:
This is a book that has a simple rhyme on each page of several elements of Christmas. I love that the pages are baby friendly. Considering Ri is only a year old, she would tear normal pages. They're thicker and more cardboard-like. The outside of the book was kinda puffy, making even more for a baby-friendly book. Ri really loved turning the pages herself. :)
Each page goes over one element of Christmas - angels, Jesus, Mary, etc. It's really a very cute book and very simple, rhyming words. I just kinda wish that the book went into a little more detail. But I guess for a smaller child, this is really all they need.
Overall, it was a very cute book. The illustrations were really neat - like a sketch almost. I think we will probably bring this book out at Christmas. Who knows, maybe it will become a favorite?!

There was once a time when I wondered when Rilynn was actually being disobedient and knowing exactly what she was doing. I mean, being born sinful I knew I wouldn't have to teach her to be defiant or disobey. But once I saw this face, it was pretty clear. If this isn't the face of intent, I don't know what is!
*By the way, this was after she had been told "no" by Daddy and she was reaching for what she wanted anyway.*
We are working on pointing her towards obedience and a desire to seek and please the Lord...I know it's a long road but we conitnually pray for God's wisdom in this area.
