My daughter has been buying books to have an assortment of Christmas books for her daughter.
She asked me about this book, that she remembers we had had when she was a little girl.
She wanted to buy their own copy but it is crazy-expensive now
I found our old copy and obviously it is not in mint condition
but it is still in great shape for all the reading it got and to be 28 or years old.
The First Christmas by Tomie dePaola
It really is a special book.
All the pages are pop-ups
and it has little things to pull and turn for more activity.
We won't be selling our copy, even for $900.
I've read it to the grands several times and I think I enjoyed it as much as they did and just like their parents-aunts and uncles did.
