Sleigh Ride by L. Anderson and M. Parish
Published by Scholastic Australia
This lovely simple book illustrates the lyrics to the Christmas song Sleigh Ride and is accompanied by a CD with a rendition of the song by Human Nature and featuring Jessica Mauboy.
The end papers are decorated by small blue lines and black musical notes and invite you to perhaps read or sing your way through the book. The Aussie illustrations bring a lovely feel to the song lyrics. We follow the koalas as they journey on their sleigh ride and pick others up along the way. The delightful thing is that the sleigh is actually a trailer on the back of an ice cream truck.
This book is delightful and finishes how all Christmas days should, with a sleep!
