Description

Patricia M. Scarry (1924-1995) was a writer of children's books. She wrote many stories that were illustrated by her husband, Richard Scarry, including Good Night, Little Bear, The Bunny Book, and The Fishing Cat.

J. P. Miller (1913-2001) illustrated many Golden Books from the 1940s through the 1970s, some written by Margaret Wise Brown and Edith Kunhardt. Before becoming a children's book illustrator, Miller had worked in the Walt Disney Studios' elite character modeling department, creating characters (such as the dwarf Dopey) for Disney's first feature film, Snow White. He later designed the character of the toy maker Geppetto for Pinocchio.

A favorite in our family since the 1970's. My adult sons love to read this to their children. A simple, sensory Christmas experience for children and adults to cherish throughout the years!

Very cute story - the scratch&sniff pages really add something special. My 2 and 4 year old both enjoy this book. Not only can they see a picture of the tree, but they can smell the pine. Additional scent pages feature oranges, gingerbread cookies, a candy cane, Apple pie, and hot cocoa. I absolutely recommend this book! We even bought a second copy for my sons preschool book exchange.

This book is adorable. It's a short read focusing on scents of things like apple pie, pine trees and other smells we associate with the holidays. My children loved it and now my grandchildren have their own copies to love.

We had this book for our children 30 years ago. It was one of their favorite Christmas books. I purchased this for our Granddaughter. The book is the same, but there is " no scent/smell" on the special pages. That is what the book is all about. I still hope it will be our Granddaughter's favorite.
