Title: “5 More Sleeps ’Til Christmas”
Author: Jimmy Fallon
Illustrator: Rich Deas
The wonderment, excitement and joy of Christmas growing closer and closer with each passing day fills kids with joy. Counting down till that happy day draws out the celebration with “5 More Sleeps ’Til Christmas.”
In preparation for the most anticipated week of the year, the whole family can count down together. This is a wonderful book for children of all ages.
The illustrations are beautiful yet simple. As the adorable little boy gets closer and closer to Christmas, his list gets longer and longer. I’m sure a few parents out there can relate. There’s humor, great imagination and all–too–relatable moments in this fun Christmas story.
