Mooseltoe by Margie Palatini

About the book: Mr. Moose prepares for Christmas using his Christmas checklist:
•Write Christmas cards and address them
•Shop til you drop
•Wraps and ribbons
•Bakes and cooks
•Roasts chestnuts
But Mr. Moose's kids notice that he forgot one thing on his list - a Christmas tree. When he goes out to pick one up, he discovers that they're all gone and comes home empty-handed. Mr. Moose and his Moosetache get creative for a substitute. The book uses rhyming text and colorful illustrations.

First line: ‘Twas the season, and Moose was merry.

My thoughts: What a cute book. I'll read more books in the Moose series after enjoying this one. The author had written a wonderful, humerous fantasy. The flow of the words that will keep the kids engaged. The bold, colorful illustrations by Henry Cole will be fun for you and your kiddos to explore. It's too late this year but next year I'm going to purchase this book for my nieces and nephews. Your kids will want you to read it again and again so enjoy!

My rating:

Quote: But—with orderly organization, a bit of regimentation, lots of imagination, and just plain old Moose know-how—getting ready for the big day should have been simple. Easy. Yes, in all probability, just ….perfectly perfect.
