Storytime: The Jolly Christmas Postman

There are many great Christmas picture books out there. This month I will spotlight some of the ones I think are "must own books." This is a definite must own Christmas Picture book! The Jolly Postman series has a Christmas book that is just absolutely adorable! This is one that you will want to supervise when your children are reading- or tell them to be very careful with it- if you want to keep it from year to year. If you aren't familiar with the Jolly Postman, he goes delivering mail to various fairytale and nursery rhyme characters. Each page has an envelope with a special surprise- a card, a puzzle, a game board, a mini book, a peep-box, etc! It is just darling and has something that every age will love!
