Review:
I think the word to describe this book perfectly is: sweet!

This is simply a short and adorable story about a child and her thoughts around the festive season and the anticipation around getting a new family member. It's a perfect story for children, I think.

I especially enjoyed the illustrations in this book. They suited the story very well.

I would recommend this book to children and people who want to read a short and sweet story for the Holidays.
