We have been REALLY enjoying A Wish To Be A Christmas Tree for a couple years now. It is highly requested. I'll have to check out the Toot & Puddle book. We just discovered the cartoon series and it is great.

We also love the pop-up Night Before Christmas book.

Just read Toot and Puddle Let it Snow at Pottery Barn Kids the other day ($16.99). Loved it, ordered it from Amazon ($11.55) :)
