The Littles Have a Merry Christmas
based on the books by John Peterson
illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers
This first reader is based on the classic chapter book The Littles and the Trash Tinies, by John Peterson. As with most stories that have been adapted to early readers, this story lacks nuance, but the boys thoroughly enjoyed the fantasy of little people with tails who use socks as sleeping bags and bathtubs as skating rinks. It will be fun to share the chapter books with them in a couple of years!
