A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest review
A gorgeous keepsake book that shines with holiday cheer and foil on every spread, All Is Merry and Bright is full of illumination and hope—perfect for the youngest readers in your life.
Stars jingle in the sky
All is calm over night
All is merry
All is bright
As cheer and good will fill the air, there is an undeniable, joyous feeling that connects the world during the holiday season. With show-stopping foil, embossing, and spot UV on every page, All Is Merry and Bright is an artistic and shimmering board book celebrating the deep sense of happiness and hope that glows as warm and bright as the holiday lights.
ALL IS MERRY and BRIGHT is a visually stunning board book that captures that merriment of the holiday season perfectly. I absolutely loved this oversized, beautifully embossed, brightly illustrated board book. The illustrations stand out, the color scheme is eye catching, and will easily hold very short attention spans, and the binding is extremely sturdy for a board book. This book is the most durable board book I’ve read. The use of limited, yet simplistic wording describing the holiday season makes for a read that kids will enjoy and understanding. Having the bright illustrations embossed creates a book that kids will not only love looking through, they’ll enjoy feeling the textures. This book definitely lives up to it’s MERRY and BRIGHT name. I recommend picking this one up! I gifted it to my 14 month year old niece, whom loved it.
