I love this book. Its beautifully written, the illustrations are stunning (and totally different from anything I've seen before). I just played the song to my daughter who stopped what she was doing to listen. She's only 8 months old but really loved it. She stared with her mouth open at the illustrations as the song played. I'm also impressed that the song music is included in the back. I feel certain that kids will be eager to learn to play it and will become part of our Christmas carols repertoire!
