The story takes us through different holiday scenarios and our favorite thing was that there were envelopes every few pages with a letter or postcard or game inside The kids really enjoyed opening the mail on these pages.

I didn t know what to expect when I pre ordered this, but we love the first two crayon books so I was willing to give it a go I m impressed This book is sweet, fun, and full of exciting gifts It s also a nice way to see our favorite crayons again like Yellow SPOILERS a crayon paper doll and outfits Adorable want to see a crayon in a snow suit Buy this book 8 paper ornaments including a new crayon friend, Silver, and a new candy cane character a recipe card hilarious a Hanukkah card and paper dreidel I don t know how well it will work when we fold and tape it together, but I love the idea a game board think Candy Land, but with crayons you ll need your own 6 sided die and movers a mapAll in all, this is a cute, fun book that I know my children will love We re always excited to add to our Christmas picture book collection, and this is a wonderful addition It s a little shorter and a little lighter on plot than the first two crayon books, but the activities and the humor than make up for it.
Disappointing The other crayon books were so good and funny, so I bought this without checking reviews We have a 2,4 and 7 year old and there are just too many pieces to this book Cute ideas but not practical to entertain children before bed time To many loose posters, post cards and other fictitious mailit would all get lost or ripped within a week And no real story line It just looks like they pieced together something last minute to make some cash off the holiday premise We returned it.
