I just got this book for my girls aged 6 and 8 and they truly love it! They have learned the dance off by heart and have performances nightly! It will be a great addition to our family traditions!

This fun and cheery book is being distributed to numerous Pre-K through 1st grade classrooms in schools in Waterloo, Ia. as a part of the literacy advancement efforts of the Cops'n'Kids Literacy Program. The students and teachers LOVE the catching tune and readily learn the words and dance moves. A few years from now this song will be as endearing and classic as "Rock Around the Christmas Tree."

I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Sheahan read from the book and sing the title song at a recent performance in NYC. He is a very talented singer and the audience was swept up in the holiday spirit of the story. Children and parents will find this book entertaining, year after year.
