Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3–Each of these regional titles begins with a map and a letter from one cousin to another about an upcoming visit. The books can be used either as holiday songbooks (each with its own version of the standard) or as a mini travelogue, as every other page includes a letter home about the sights visited in each area, including historical tidbits. New York City includes sidewalk Santas, bridges gleaming, and a pigeon in a Central Park tree. Virginia features tall ships, guiding lights (lighthouses), and a cardinal in a dogwood tree. California highlights hummingbirds, cable cars, and a quail in a redwood tree. Bright and colorful cartoon art makes these books acceptable additions for libraries in the featured states.–Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library

What a fun book! Taken from the viewpoint of a child's visit to NYC, Lisa Adams has captured the sights and sounds of NYC at Christmas time. My son began singing the book as we were standing in the store, and couldn't put it down. It is delightful!

This books takes you to all the top spots of your favorite place for Christmas: NEW YORK CITY. We come to New York each year just for the Christmas attractions. Wish that we could stay for 12 days! We will bring our book with us and read it over and over again in our hotel room. (hope that it snows)

This is going to be a new favorite in our family. Nice way to bring back an old favorite song. We love Christmas in New York...so this will certainly be read each Christmas season. Love the art work too! Lots of fun.
