    DescriptionYou can see it in the way the snowman's eyes sparkle. Hear it in the voices of carolers echoing in the streets, and in the sounds of children trimming the tree. You can feel it in the warm fire dancing in the hearth. Meanwhile, the mother hen hushes her chicks, the pigs' little tails curl in excitement, and the sheep nod knowingly as all wait in eager anticipation for a joyous Christmas surprise. With lush illustrations as comforting as a Yule-time fire, this tender Christmas lullaby about cherished traditions and welcome surprises is sure to become an annual favorite.

    Review quote
    "The authors capture in bold colors, broad strokes and telling detail the anxious anticipation among children on a farm." --"The San Francisco Gate " "Another charmer from author Kate Banks and illustrator Georg Hallensleben, a duo known for conjuring intimate little worlds of word and image . . . . The book sustains its spell even beyond the last page." --"BookPage" "A gently thrilling reminder of all the elements that make for a celebratory season."--Starred, "Publishers Weekly" "Few Christmas stories meld both the Santa and Nativity aspects of the holiday, but this effort succeeds admirably with both memorable art and a satisfying story." --Starred, "Kirkus Reviews"" ""A beautiful homage to Christmas past and present." -"Shelf Awareness" "In yet another successful collaboration, Banks and Hallensleben celebrate the wonders of the yuletide season." --"Horn Book ""The lovely understated text is full of sensory details, and the evocative soft-focus acrylic art strikes just the right balance between realism and wonder." --"School Library Journal " "This joyful picture book from longtime award-winning collaborators Banks and Hallensleben builds the anticipation of the holiday season." --"Booklist "
