An alphabet Christmas story. When the whole family comes to visit for Christmas, everyone has to find their own place to sleep. Even the bathtub. Done in rhyme. Very cute.

The story isn't original but it has that warm and fuzzy feels you expect from a Christmas story, with a huge family gathering under the same roof. There aren't enough beds for everyone so of course they get creative.

I love how each family member's "bed" location also showcases their personality.

It's a cute book. I'm not a die hard fan of the movie "Christmas Vacation" but it has a little of that feel. The ridiculousness of some family members. This is definitely a book I wouldn't mind buying fo

Loved it! My kids love it! We have read it just about every night since we rented it from the library. I want to buy it. It tells where all of the visiting relatives sleep for the holidays, it does it with the ABC's. I can't even describe how cute. There are people under the miseltoe and out on the porch swing. It's great! The pictures are vibrant too! A must holiday read!

You could do a lot worse for a book that rhymes and features the alphabet. The detailed pictures are a nice distraction from any tedium.
