All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey - OPTIONAL

Carey, Mariah All I Want for Christmas is You Illustrated by Colleen Madden  Doubleday Books for Young Readers, 2015 (Random House).  $17.99  PICTURE BOOK Content: G.   

The story is the song “All I Want for Christmas is You”.  The illustrations take a different interpretation on the song with a little girl who is dreaming of having a dog that she saw at the pet adoption center.  She asks Santa and draws pictures of it and on Christmas morning it seems as though she hasn’t gotten her wish, but the dog is left on the front porch and she is happy.  

The illustrations are bright and cute and the little girl and her dog are adorable.  I was disappointed in the story even though it was a new take on an old song.  There are better Christmas books out there.   

EL (K-3) - OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
