Christmastime by Alison Jay - OPTIONAL

Jay, Alison Christmastime.  Dial (Penguin), 2012.  $17.  Content: G.  PICTURE BOOK. 

 This book has no story and it is not an abecedarian, though one word or phrase on each page accompanies Jay’s gorgeous illustrations – I actually wish there were NO words, instead of the few that there are, so that I could just appreciate a wordless holiday wonder instead.  I love Jay’s crackle-varnish style, so I will keep it, but it is not a favorite.
