Together at Christmas by Eileen Spinelli.....Review & FLASH GIVEAWAY!

I just love Christmas books. Our family spends the month of December pretty much reading them exclusively at bedtimes and story times. Actually some of these holiday books are just so wonderful that the end up staying out all year round. I have a feeling Together at Christmas by Eileen Spinelli is one of the books. Here is the scoop!
It's Christmas Eve, and a family of ten mice shivers in the snow. One by one, each mouse finds a place to stay warm, only to discover that they'd rather huddle together on this holiday night. With gently rhyming text and charming illustrations, this picture book is a wonderful read-aloud at Christmas time.

Such a cute little story!  This counting down book is great for children.  We watch as each little mouse finds a place to stay warm.  The rhyming text is fun to read and the illustrations are just wonderful making the little mice appear whimsical and cozy.  I absolutely loved the message of friendship and the beauty of being together....just lovely!  This book would make a wonderful addition to your Christmas (or anytime!) library.  Pick up your copy today on Amazon... I am so pleased to tell you that the publisher, Albert Whitman and Company is giving one lucky reader a copy of Together at Christmas by Eileen Spinelli! Thanks so much to the sponsor and good luck! HURRY and get those entries in though....this is a flash giveaway and it ends fast! a Rafflecopter giveaway
