You Choose Christmas

Kane Miller. (You Choose). Oct. 2023. 32p. Tr $12.99. ISBN 9781684646074.
PreS-Gr 2–In the style of “I Spy” or “Where’s Waldo,” this highly browsable picture book contains a lot for readers to pore over. The bustle of the holiday season is captured in the illustrations of shopping, tree decorating, and outdoor winter activities. “If there was snow at Christmas, what would you choose to do?” readers are asked on the page with the winter activities. “Make a snowman, ride a sled, or build your own igloo?” Fun facts about holiday traditions around the world are also included. Readers will find familiar and unfamiliar dishes as they decipher a festive feast, perceptive readers will notice sweaters for Cinderella and Goldilocks, and careful readers will study all the jobs of the elves in Santa’s workshop. Though the book is slim, attentive children will continue to find new details after multiple readings. There are no resources included.
VERDICT Simple rhyming text, interactive questions, and busy full-page illustrations with a seek-and-find feel will keep readers engaged.
