Madeline: I really like the book, I love it. This is a great story about a family on a farm. While they are waiting for Santa to arrive they are busy doing chores. When they come back to the house they see somebody had lit their Christmas tree while they were away with the farm animals. Santa knew that the kids were a big help to their Mom and Dad and he brought them all what they asked for Christmas. My favorite part is that I think the illustrations are really good.
Sophia: I like “A Farm Country Christmas Eve” because it is about farm animals and Santa. My favorite part of this book is when the Mom is milking the cow and she squirts some milk into the pet cat’s mouth. It was so funny!
