In this holiday addition to the You Sing with Me series, the lyrics to the eponymous carol accompany cheerful scenes of bundled-up animals cavorting in a wintry landscape (families can download a free version of the song by scanning a QR code within the book). Sliders incorporated into the pages let readers add heads to a pair of snowmen, send a cat and mouse sailing down a hill on their sled, and open the curtains of a festively decorated house; turning a wheel in the final scene causes Santa and his reindeer to soar across the night sky. It’s like a contemporary Peaceable Kingdom of animals making the most of the holiday. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
