Lucy Cousins: Maisy's Snowy Christmas Eve
This is a simple story with a satisfying plot that's likely to go over well with totz (and me!) As Maisy and a cast of animal characters prepare for Christmas, the question "But Where is Eddie?" is asked over and over. Finally we go look for Eddie and find him buried in snow. The animals help him out--Eddie is an elephant.

That night everyone gathered
around the tree to sing Christmas carols.
And Eddie sang
the loudest of all!

This is a sturdy board book that's 30 pages self-cover, 5" x 5.75" with glittery snow on the cover! I love glitter when it's used well like this.
