The Christmas season is a very special time.  Countless peepholes give a glimpse into rooms decorated for Christmas, at the Christmas market with its many booths, and at the end, a festively illuminated Christmas room!


Die Vorweihnachtszeit ist eine ganz besondere Zeit. Zahlreiche Gucklöcher geben den Blick frei in weihnachtlich geschmückte Zimmer, auf den Weihnachtsmarkt mit seinen vielen Ständen und am Schluss ins festlich erleuchtete Weihnachtszimmer!

By: Scholte van Mast, Ruth

Format: Boardbook, 16 pages; 8 in x 8.5 in

Editorial Review


Wir freuen uns auf Weihnachten is a delightful Christmas book. It has countless cutout shapes in each page, cleverly turning colors and pictures into another item on the next page. The story begins in a Kindergarten class preparing for Weihnachtsmarkt. The room is full of crafts and a hanging advent calendar. The next page introduces us to Julia and her family. They are getting ready to go to the Weihnachtsmarkt. At the Weihnachtsmarkt Papa buys a Christmas tree and Julia rides on a carrousel.

 

The background picture shows a few Weihnachtsmarkt booths. At home, Julia bakes Plätzchen with her mom and little brother. She also helps to decorate the tree, listens to a Blaskapelle on Marktplatz with her family, and on Christmas day she and her brother receive their Christmas gifts!

 

The text is a great length for toddlers. The illustrations are the highlight though! It is fun to find the details in the pictures, such as signs, household items lying around and what people and animals are doing in the background. The cutouts are by far the most impressive. The front cover has sparkled-gold coloring and a couple Weihnachtsmarkt signs. This makes a beautiful family book that celebrates Christmas.

Age recommendation: 2-4 years old
