Silent Night

Francesca Crespi, Author, Fransesca Crespi, Author, Francesca Crespi, Illustrator Henry Holt & Company $3.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8050-0471-7
Two small books feature four fold-out scenes each: Silent Night offers three pictures of the manger and one of the approaching shepherds, plus lyrics to the song; Santa Claus shows four frames of Santa's flight, his landing on a roof and tumbling down a chimney, and the beautifully decorated tree he's about to leave behind. Both books radiate with Crespi's opalescent use of color. These aren't really pop-ups as much as hand-sized tableaux, perfect for stuffing into stockings at holiday time. Ages 4-7. (September)
