Can't Wait Till Christmas!

Mike Huckabee, illus. by Jed Henry, Putnam, $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-399-25539-7
The waiting is the hardest part of the holiday, at least for former presidential candidate Huckabee when he was a child. Weeks before Christmas, young Mike is so eager to know if one of the gifts under the tree is his much-desired football that he's about to burst. He hatches a plan, drawing his older sister into cahoots, to surreptitiously find out. But keeping the secret from Mom and Dad is harder still. Huckabee's lighthearted cautionary tale is buoyed by zippy digital illustrations that convey both its humor and warmth. Ages 4–8. (Oct.)
