Make and Play: Christmas. Joey Chou, illustrator. 2017. Candlewick. 26 pages. [Source: Review copy]
Premise/plot: Make & Play Christmas is an interactive book for families with young children. It features 20 press-out pieces to create your own tree ornaments. The first seventeen pages are the press-out pieces. (You'll definitely need a way to keep these together; there is no built in storage system.) Ornaments include a reindeer, a Santa, a tree, an angel, a snowman, several balls, two ginger cookies, a bell, lots of snowflakes, and a candy cane or two.
So what else does the book include? Suggestions for activities for the whole family.
