Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're shining the holiday spotlight on an ADORABLE title that arrived on my doorstep last month and was awaiting the arrival of winter for its site debut. So, okay...winter in MY neck of the woods is a little late arriving, and even now, the temps outside reach over 80 degrees in the daytime, but I've had enough of keeping this one on the backburner. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...blog wise that is. I hope there's room on your holiday reading list because we're about to add a new title. You're welcome. ^-^ Today's book of choice is...
In a word...ADORABLE!
(Yes, I might have indeed already said that...)
In two words...BEYOND ADORABLE!
This is the story of a little Yeti and how very much they love winter. BUT...as with anything, too much can turn a good thing sour.
A great way to introduce kiddos to the legendary critter while delighting readers of all ages with the cuteness within. Seriously, when I opened the package, I squee-d with delight. As cute as the image is above and below, it's THAT much cuter in person. I mean really, just look at the cover! He is so (I know you're tired of this word) cute and he even has a little yeti pal to keep him company...think "American Girl" but for yetis.
