    When your children seem especially eager for Christmas to come, then it is time to reach for Brenner and Christy s gentle, sequential countdown story AND THEN COMES CHRISTMAS In a lovely lyrical style, Brenner follows a When Then narrative that evokes all the special sights, sounds and smells of the season When the days barely start and they re over again, and red berries blaze against green shrubs, and bare branches rake across the sky Then hang boughs of fir or spruce or pine, dotted with cones and bits of holly, welcoming winter In a snowy setting that looks vaguely like rural New England, two siblings engage in holiday traditions at school, at home and in the community Brenner introduces wonderful imagery Wrap yourself in layers and tumble out of doors to romp in snow as smooth as bedcovers and accessible yet descriptive vocabulary blaze, cling, dwindle to set a joyous anticipatory scene Visiting Santa, selecting a tree, baking goodies and making gifts are just a few of the holiday highlights Christy s illustrations balance cool, snowy outdoor landscapes with warm, cozy interiors The blotted, misty edges add to an overall dreamy glow with lots of child like appeal The sister and brother are a cheery pair of role models, cooperative, considerate and connected Parents will certainly hope young listeners feel inspired to recreate the satisfying scenes with as much seasonal spirit as these two do Following the family s lively little black dog throughout the book will be a fun attention keeper for little ones.AND THEN COMES CHRISTMAS is a well paced book that highlights many of the special down to earth holiday moments that children savor It is a lovely choice to add to your family s Christmas reading traditions

    Pretty simple book, nothing too remarkable, just a description of the activities of the season A rather soft and relaxing feel to the whole book The kids at storytime enjoyed pointing out the things they d done or were going to do, though, and it was fun asking them about some of the things that were very winter related, since we don t get snow here I liked the illustrations, very soft and warm.Though I might use it again in a holiday storytime, it wasn t one that left a really strong impression More than OK, but nothing really memorable.

    Overall this book was good, with great illustrations The reason it gets a two star rating is because it mentions packages being delivered and hidden away This doesn t matter when I read it to my one year old, but if he was older it could cause him to question why packages are being hiddenwhy ruin Christmas for a child who believes

    3.5 Stars for this book It does a nice job describing the transition from Fall to Winter and then to Christmas morning where The milk and cookies and carrots are gone The stockings are stuffed fat And presents spill out from under the tree, begging to be opened

    The text and beautiful illustrations describe the approach of Christmas with changing weather, decorations, and traditional celebrations No mention of the Christian celebration of Jesus birth Santa and opening gifts are the focal point to which all the anticipation leads.
