It?s the night before Christmas and Charlie Chimp is far too excited to sleep! As he keeps himself busy getting ready for the big day, he begins to hear strange noises — who could be coming to visit him on Christmas Eve?From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-Charlie hears a series of noises and his imagination leads him to some far-fetched assumptions about every thud, scratch, scrape, and bang. Has the Christmas tree come to life? Is there an escaped reindeer in the house? A robot toy waving his ray gun? Preschoolers may not share the chimp's evident worry as the imagined monsters pop up, hugely, on each page, for they are completely benign. In fact, young participants in this made-for-sharing pop-up should enjoy the humor and suspense of the extremely simple story-at least the first time around. The bright and cheerful art makes this an appealing package.-S. P.
