This is a Christmas story for Moms everywhere! I enjoyed the new twist on an old classic, although it is a story line that will resonate more with the adults than little children. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I really loved this book. I don't think there is a parent, especially a mom, out there that hasn't experienced what is in this story. Ann Whitford Paul did an amazing job writing this children's story based on a Christmas classic. However, there is a twist and it focuses on some of the more frustrating aspects of Christmas gatherings and the exhaustion that follows. Rather than Santa being in the spot light, this story highlights Mrs. Claus. The story rhymes and the illustrations are wonderful! I think that every child and adult will love this book! I recommend it for every parent! I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed reading this little book. I’m sure that all parents who have survived a crazy Christmas morning could relate  to the chaos of a Christmas evening with tired kids and post Christmas mess as described by the author. This new take  on an old classic was cleverly written and thought out. My only concern is that some may pick this up as a book written for young children, given that it is a picture book. It would be much more appropriate for older children and their parents. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A very cute book! I read it to my 3 year old, it was a little over his head and I had to change a few words, but he enjoyed it and the illustrations. Just want to clarify that the words were not really bad words, I just don't want my kiddo repeating "sucks" and "shrew," since he repeats everything right now. I literally laughed out loud while I read it. Moms everywhere wish Mrs. Saint Nick would visit after the holidays. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

A lively, funny, satisfying take on an old favorite. The language is pleasing to read aloud; the art is lovely and creates a cozy, inviting world.

It's so much fun to see a familiar holiday rhyme adapted and illustrated to reflect today's holiday preparation "insanities'! This is one book that will bring joy and smiles at every reading. ...from ss
