The Christmas Cookie Sprinkle SnitcherThe Christmas Cookie Sprinkle Snitcher by Robert Kraus

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ever so much fun. My sister got it for my niece and they brought it over so that I could see it tonight. It's a reprint of a '69 title. I LOVE the illustrations. Most (not quite all, though) of the rhymes work very well.

Sort of like the Grinch the Snitch learns his lesson. It is better to give and share than take.

When Cows Come Home For ChristmasWhen Cows Come Home For Christmas by Dori Chaconas

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A bit on the silly side (and the rhymes/rhythm could be improved) ... but that's OK. It's a fun one that is new to me ... and so will most likely be new to a lot of the kiddos. Saw it on display at the public library yesterday, will be reading it in the school library tomorrow!

(Edit from today ... it was a hit!)

No Two AlikeNo Two Alike by Keith Baker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love, love, love the pictures. The text is nice and simple and quiet, too, but the pictures are what made this book for me. Now must save it for the next time I see my niece ... and then maybe PreK in January. This is the public library copy. I need to get one for our school!

The color combo is just fun. Lots of lovely snowflakes and two small, bright red birdies. I think it's the contrast between the red and the white snow, blue sky, and green trees.

Plus the message. There are no two snowflakes that are alike. Or animals. Or kids. Everyone is special.

Which sounds cheesy to say but the book did it just right.
