This is a really cute and unique holiday book to share with your family.  What sets it apart from other holiday books is that it is made up of 6 short stories told by five different Christmas Wood animals.  The last story is a Christmas miracle tale that will warm your heart.  

Not only are the short stories a joy to read, but the playful and fun illustrations really help to bring this story to life.  We found ourselves lingering on each page to take in all the fine detailing of the woodland friends.  As kids read through the five tales, they will learn a lesson along the way.  The last story combines all the animals in a cute way, and is a great way to welcome in the holidays, with a good book.  This book was an instant hit with my family, and we will definitely be reading this book time and again.

About this book:

"Christmas wood is full of animals: Badger, Fidgety Fox, Owl (not Wise Old Owl, just Owl), the Rabbit family, Tiny Mouse, and Robin. 

It's nearly Christmas and all the animals are getting ready to celebrate - Badger is looking for new friends, Tiny is making (or is that eating...) gingerbread, and Rosie Rabbit just can't get ANY peace and quiet! Five festive stories from the animals in the wood all come together in a fantastically Christmassy finale in a barn with some rather special guests..."
