Not our favorite Pookie book ☹️
Reviewed in the United States on December 1, 2020
I usually love all of the Pookie books, but this isn’t my favorite. We have the Halloween Pookie book and my son absolutely loved it. This one doesn’t read as well… There’s not a lot of talk about Santa or presents, put more talk about activities leading up to Christmas morning. We don’t get a lot of snow where we live, and the first couple pages talk about walking in the snow. What I liked about the Halloween book was that it went over different costumes and the act of trying them on. I was hoping this book would talk more about opening presents or waiting for Santa. Luckily, Pookie does make cookies, which is my son‘s favorite thing in the world right now! 🍪 He’s 18 months and doesn’t seem as engaged in this story as other Sandra Boynton books (it doesn’t seem to flow or rhyme as well)...
Since it’s not very expensive, it’s not a bad book to add to your collection, but I feel like there’s better Christmas stories out there for babies and toddlers.
Thanks for reading! I hope this was helpful. 😉
