Tacky’s Christmas by Helen Lester

Daughter’s age when read: 3 years old

This book follows a group of penguins including the penguin that marches to his owner drummer, Tacky.  They are busy wrapping gifts and decorating for Christmas when a bunch of wolves come by to steal their presents. When they see Tacky dressed up as Santa they think he is the real thing and end up staying to celebrate Christmas with the penguins instead of taking their gifts. My daughter enjoyed this one the first few days but it wasn’t one of the books that stuck with her.  I think the only reason she asked for it in those first days was because there is one page where you sing a song and she loves musical books. I think it might be better geared towards a 4 or 5 year old so we may try it again next year.
