Let’s explore twelve Christmas scenes. In this scene we see some ornaments that are ready to decorate a tree or a house. Here we see some cookies which Santa might like to sample on Christmas Eve. Over here you can see some wooden toys which look just about ready to be popped into Christmas stockings.

For each scene children are invited, in a bouncing rhyming text, to find two or three items which can be found in the accompanying photograph. The items are not hard to find but they are cunningly placed so as to give young children a challenge.

Bright and cleverly compiled photographs full of lots of items to look at and to look for make this sturdy board book an entertaining Christmas title for small people.
