Just received in the mail an adorable Christmas book: The Legend of Mistletoe and the Christmas Kittens! Cute story of a selfless little Christmas kitty who (*spoiler alert*) finally finds a home! In addition to the book, there is a plush Mistletoe kitty to cuddle with while reading, perfect if you do not have a real live lap cat of you own!
The book, written by Joe Troiano and illustrated by Lydia Halverson, is part of the Holiday Hill Farm family, best known for Spookley, The Square Pumpkin, and is available at Barnes and Noble.
Cupcake and I enjoyed reading the book together this morning and when we finished she said, "More!" Then she proceeded to read the book herself, mumbling in toddlerese with a few key repeated words, "Kisses Kitty" (translation: Christmas Kitty!) It is a lyrical poem with beautiful illustrations that will appeal to the whole family! I plan on reading it everyday til Christmas and surprising Cupcake with her very own Mistletoe under the tree on Christmas morn!
In exchange for mentioning The Legend of Mistletoe and the Christmas Kittens on my blog, I received the book and plush kitty for Cupcake and a second set to give away to one of my readers! In an effort to get it to the winner as close to Christmas as possible, I will announce the winner tonight at midnight. To enter the drawing just leave a comment telling me your favorite family Christmas book! Check tomorrow morning to see if you won. As soon as the winner can contact me via email with an address I'll send the package out in tomorrow's mail!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
