Product Description Host of NBC's The Tonight Show and three-time #1 New York Times-bestselling author Jimmy Fallon returns with this sweet and spirited Christmas picture book. Just 5 more sleeps 'til Christmas! Can you believe it's here? I know that Santa's coming soon 'cause I've been good all year. Everyone who grew up celebrating Christmas remembers the excitement that built up to the most magical day of the year. But why not make the last week until Christmas more fun by counting how many sleeps until the arrival of Santa and his reindeer? Accompanied by the beautiful and energetic artwork of Rich Deas, enjoy the humor of Jimmy Fallon as he prepares readers for the most exciting week of the year in this new holiday tradition for your family―5 More Sleeps 'til Christmas. From School Library Journal PreS-Gr 3-Waiting for Christmas is not easy! Finding himself just five sleeps away from Christmas, a bespectacled white boy is becoming more and more excited as the holiday approaches. He, accompanied by his trusty blue dog and little sister, decorates, enjoys hot chocolate and candy canes, and bakes cookies in preparation for Santa's visit. Every night, his increasing anticipation causes the boy to struggle to fall asleep, and every night something magical happens once he does. The big day finally arrives, and once the gifts are all unwrapped, the boy restarts his countdown: 364 sleeps until next Christmas. Seemingly interminable days of eager excitement are familiar experiences for many families celebrating a big holiday. The vivid colors and expressive illustrations in this book place the reader inside the pages of the story, empathizing with the boy's impatience as the story progresses. Families will especially appreciate the pacing protagonist on the endpapers with his saggy socks and runaway reddish-brown hair. Festive decorations adorn each number from five to one as the story counts down to Christmas morning, enhancing the holiday sentiment. The short, rhyming text is enjoyable for both children and adults; balanced, four-line rhymes are used throughout the book, making the story ideally suited to be read aloud.
