This is another Christmas favorite of my girls. You can never go wrong with Eric Carle. This was given as a present to us 5 or 6 years ago. The girls would look at the book over and over. The story line is simple, and the little ones have fun predicting the animals. The farmer in the book looks very familiar, Carle himself maybe? The girls love the button at the end that gives the tree a special, magical touch! Ours is worn out and doesn't work any longer, but it was probably pushed hundreds of times. This book is perfect for the younger preschool aged children.
