Merry Christmas Mom and Dad

Day Seven
Merry Christmas Mom and Dad
by Mercer Mayer

I love Mercer Mayer books! I promise this one will bring a smile to your face.

Each beautifully illustrated page adds so much to the story. Here are a few excerpts:

I wanted to decorate some Christmas cookies just for you, but I couldn't stop tasting them.

I wanted to carry the Christmas balls just for you, but the box was upside down.

On Christmas Eve I tried to go right to sleep just for you, but I was too excited.

I didn't want to make you get up too early on Christmas I brought my toys upstairs to show you.

Have fun reading this one to your child. Picture Books aren't just for kids.

  2. It is adorable, Rena. I love it.
