Christmas is a bright and cheerful holiday, one full of winking lights and flickering candles. In this celebration of Christmas the author has created a bouncy rhyming text which captures the joys of the season.

Coupled with the whimsical illustrations showing people of all kinds enjoying the Christmas season, this is a title which little children will come back to again and again. Best of all perhaps, is the fact that every double page spread offers the young reader the opportunity to press a button and thus light up Christmas tree and house lights, candles, and lamps. Children will even have the opportunity to make Rudolph's famous nose light up.
