Genre: Children / Christmas
As Christmas approaches, the family is busy getting ready. The outside is decorated with lights and wreath, the children are eagerly baking goodies, a snowman adorns the lawn, and the Nutcracker is performed. And off in the North Pole, Santa and his elves are busy building toys and loading the sleigh for delivery.
In Christmas Magic, the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations is presented in rhyming verse. Each beautiful illustration is a changing picture – with the pull of the tab, it transforms from “before” to “after.” Excited children will experience their own joys of the anticipation of Christmas as they read this book.
