{ Slothy Claus and Night Night Angel - TLC Book Tour }


About Slothy Claus: A Christmas Story

What will children do when a sluggish Slothy Claus doesn’t make it to their home in time for Christmas morning? This charming story helps kids learn that Christmas is about more than just presents under the tree.

Slothy Claus has lots of presents for good boys and girls this year, but how is this notoriously lethargic animal supposed to travel all around the world in just one night? You guessed it! Slothy takes his sweet time, and when kids wake up to empty stockings and bare trees, it feels like Christmas is ruined! How will they ever find happiness without their chocolates and toys?

Slothy Claus is equal parts humorous and heartwarming. Children ages 4 to 8 will

  • learn that the joy of Christmas doesn’t come from material things but from the love between family and friends
  • enjoy the delightfully funny one-of-a-kind artwork
  • love the classic rhyme that will fill your own family’s Christmas with love, laughter, and a spirit of giving

Slothy Claus concludes with a summer scene complete with flip flops and a barbecue when Slothy Claus finally flies down in his sleigh to deliver gift after gift–for a special celebration of Christmas in July. With a bright, glittery cover, this fun picture book is the perfect gift for advent or Christmas.


About Night Night, Angel: A Sleepy Christmas Celebration

‘Tis the season for joy! Celebrate the family fun and season’s blessings of Christmas with a young arctic fox as your family remembers that Jesus is the best gift of all. Amy Parker’s delightful rhymes and Virginia Allyn’s sweet illustrations make Night Night, Angel the perfect read-aloud for toddlers and preschoolers enjoying the Christmas season.

Little fox loves all the excitement that Christmas brings to the forest: making creative presents, placing the star on the tree, and making sure she is spotlight-ready for the big Christmas play. But soon she realizes that the perfect gift has already been given through the baby who arrived on the first Christmas night!

As the fourth seasonal title in the hugely successful Night Night bedtime storybook brand, this Christmas board book

  • gives families a fun way to say goodnight during the Advent season
  • celebrates the special moments of family holiday activities
  • gently reminds children that Baby Jesus is the reason for the season

The Christmas theme and sparkling cover make Night Night, Angel perfect for an Advent gift, stocking stuffer, or Christmas morning surprise from parents, grandparents, Sunday school teachers, and friends. Your little angel will be ready to snuggle in for the night as together you celebrate the many blessings of Christmas!

This morning, I am bringing you two brilliant kid books, with Christmas themes.  Just in time for the season.
If you are looking for some fun gift ideas for your little ones, these would make perfect stocking stuffers, Christmas morning gifts or even advent surprises.
I asked my niece Tiffany to read these with Eva, her 3 year old, and Eva loved them both.  She really enjoyed the illustrations as well as the stories themselves.
So in Slothy Claus, we meet Slothy the sloth, of course.  He has a very important mission, and that is to fill the stockings of all the good girls and boys.  But as we all know, sloths are notoriously slow, and so getting to the stockings in time for Christmas morning, proves to be quite a chore for Slothy.
Christmas morning comes around and little girls and boys are expecting some wonderful gifts, unfortunately they are met with empty stockings, which prove to be quite devastating to some.
The good news is that eventually it all works out, and they learn a really important lesson along the way, about the reason for the season, and the things that matter the and friends.
Night Night Angel is also such a sweet book, which this time brings us the cutest little arctic fox.  It's another story that brings forth all the beauty and excitement of Christmas, while also teaching little ones what the season is all about, and why the best gift of all is already amongst us.  
Two special books full of beautiful illustrations and heart warming stories, that I think will make a wonderful addition to your little one's bookshelves.  In a world that has become so caught up in the commercialism of Christmas, these are the perfect reminders that maybe we need to go back to the basics, back to the reason why we celebrate to begin with.  

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for providing me with review copies of both books.
