lovely board book about Christmas and love

 

I LOVE YOU MORE THAN CHRISTMAS is a sweet story about all the joy of the holiday and importance of time with family. Little Bear is so excited for Christmas and all the fun things it brings. As the bears celebrate the holiday, Little Bear appreciates all the fantastic parts, but their favorite part of the holiday is family and the love that they share.

What I loved: This is such a lovely, non-religious book celebrating Christmas and all the love of family. The book brings up all the fun parts of the holiday, such as decorating the tree, caroling, cards, and more but keeps bringing it back to the most important part, which is family and the love shared between them. The text is really lovely and flows smoothly throughout, featuring a charming main character of Little Bear and their parents. The board book format will make this work well for young toddlers and preschoolers with a gifting feature of a to/from page at the front.

The illustrations are really soft and lovely throughout, capturing all the joy and love of the bears. There are many details to explore on each page that will keep children entertained as they listen to the story. While the text is a bit lengthy for a board book, it works well in the context of this lovely story, and repetitive sections are great for young readers. The font used manages to stay readable throughout the book.

Final verdict: A beautiful holiday board book, I LOVE YOU MORE THAN CHRISTMAS is a charming, non-religious read that is sure to delight young readers.
