Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Listen to the CD of Bernadette Peters sing this song as you follow along with this six-and —a-half-inch square little book. The star of the paint and collage illustrations is a frisky little puppy. Follow along as he goes through all the Christmas preparations. He brings home his tree, decorates it, hangs stockings on the fireplace, wraps gifts, and makes a gingerbread house. He goes ice skating, sledding, and sings carols with his friends. He even takes a ride with Santa in his sleigh. Children may not want to do all these activities but they will want a dog like this for Christmas. Peters invites listeners to sing along the second time she sings this Christmas song. The recording was done live. At the end of it, Peters says she has "a little something from me." Does she mean this CD? This would be a satisfactory little hostess gift during the holidays.
