Book of the Week: 5 More Sleeps Till Christmas

Author: Jimmy Fallon

Cost: $13.28 on Amazon

Just 5 More Sleeps till Christmas was written by host of NBC's The Tonight Show Jimmy Fallon. It’s described as a sweet and spirited Christmas picture book”, and perfect to build up excitement for the holidays this year. It’s for ages 3-6, and yes it’s already sold out at some stores that were offering pre-ordering!

REVIEW: The vivid colors and expressive illustrations in this book place the reader inside the pages of the story, empathizing with the boy’s impatience as the story progresses. ... The short, rhyming text is enjoyable for both children and adults; balanced, four-line rhymes are used throughout the book, making the story ideally suited to be read aloud. This light, silly book is a fun addition to the canon of commercial Christmas stories for elementary readers." ―School Library Journal
