Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet and Simple I love how this book is illustrated - the watercolours truly capture the air and light of a winter's day. The story is sweet - Squirrel is excited to decorate and prepare for Christmas but thinks Fox will ruin her style. This reminds me of how I yell at my own family when I am decorating because I am a control freak! HA!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not much of a story The description talks about this being about coming together for Christmas but the story really doesn’t explain that at all. It’s a bit random and the message is not clear.
