This book was not the best book I've ever read (probably that was The Princess and the Pit Stop or Oh No!: Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World), but I did like this book because some pages you can be like, "Uh, and they didn't do anything but stare at the picture," because there're no words, so you can make up your own words for that page. ...more
Beautiful illustrations of a magical visit to a cabin for Christmas. A family decides to leave the city and spend Christmas in a cabin in the woods...but the stores are sold out of turkey and there are no decorations. Special "visitors" come in the night and prepare the home for a perfect Christmas morning. The text is very brief, the story is told primarily through the illustrations.
This was more a picture book than a storybook, very little text. The story follows a family of bears moving into a cabin that was abanonded by people moving back to the city. But then a family move back to it for the Christmas season... so as the bear family move out the back door the human family move in the front. They both help each other without knowing they help each other. Nice illustrations.
It is Christmas time and the Bear family is getting ready to celebrate in the cottage until the humans who own the cottage decide that being in the city for Christmas isn't what they want. They need to be in their cottage celebrating! Cute Christmas story of how both families get the cottage ready and celebrate.
