Picture Book Review: J is for Jingle Bells
J is for Jingle Bells: A Christmas Alphabet Book
Written by: Laura Purdie Salas
Published by: Capstone Press, 2011
* This is an informative alphabet book about Christmas, perfect for young children. Each letter has a Christmas holiday related word to go along with it (except Z is for daZZle). The definition or explanation of the given word is written so that it is both informative and easy to understand and is accompanied by photographs. The author includes Fun Facts about Christmas at the end of the book and also provides a glossary of unfamiliar words (example - anticipation) and additional resources.
The kids, ages 4 and 6 enjoyed this book and it was "just right" in the amount of info given, especially for my 4 year old.
This book was borrowed from the library.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
