Not as great as I thought it would be
on December 27, 1999
With 4 children, I thought this book would be a delight. All but the baby were disappointed (she loves the light and music at the end!). My 4 yr. old can't figure out what the Holly Bugs are (those are just eyes, Mom, where are the bugs?) and my 9 and 11 year old weren't even interested enough to look at it more than once. "Why'd you buy this one, Mom?" Personally, I think the pop-ups themselves are cleverly done. Overall, as an adult, I like the book. I'm just disappointed that my kids didn't respond more positively to it.
