PreS-K--This charming, cheerful translation of Demain c'est Noel (Pastel, 1994) features young Juliette and her entourage of stuffed-animal friends. The simple plot takes readers through the day before Christmas (buying and decorating a tree, making cookies); Christmas Eve (hanging the stocking, bedtime story, the toys witness Santa's visit); and Christmas Day (present opening and sharing). One or two sentences grace each page, enhancing soft watercolor illustrations with festive gold-foil highlights. A wonderful bedtime story that's equally well suited to group sharing.--LF
