One Small Donkey

One Small Donkey by Dandi Daley Mackall tells the Christmas story from a donkey's point of view. The illustrations are absolutely adorable. However, I was not totally impressed with the way the story is told. It does rhyme, but I think the story could have had more substance. My 2.5 year old does like the pictures however. Overall, I think it's a sweet Christmas story to add to your collection, but I wouldn't consider it a must have.

Itsy Bitsy Christmas

Itsy Bitsy Christmas is a sweet Christmas story about the excitement the little mice (Itsy and Bitsy) experience as they look for the King coming to Bethlehem. This board book is a great little book to teach little ones about how Jesus comes for everyone, no matter your size. I think Max Lucado could have chosen better names for the mice... but otherwise, it's very well illustrated with a cute theme. Will definitely read multiple times with my toddler this Christmas season!
