There’s an important message too about the real reason we celebrate Christmas and how important it is. Lilly begins our story by showing us her advent ‘cow’lander. She is going to use it, not only, to count down to Christmas day but as a reminder of how she can kind and do well for others.
The illustrations are bright and eye-catching. I really liked the page borders too. They add to the “busy-ness” of the story. I think many children will enjoy exploring the images, as much as, they will the story itself.
I think a young reader will enjoy following the speech bubbles of each of the characters. Having the text presented in this wall will allow them to read without getting too bogged down in row after row of black on white.
Christmas might be a month old now, but I think the children in your life will certainly enjoy it now. You can always put it away for safe keeping for another 11 months too.
