'Tis the season 2015 - Children's Books

All we want for Christmas is Mariah Carey's new book? Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas Is You, one of the bestselling and most beloved songs of all time, brings Christmas joy to countless listeners of all ages every year. 



Well, for the first time since it was released in 1994, Mariah Carey's version of All I Want For Christmas Is You is no longer the most-played song of the holiday season at stores and retail chains.

No problem, the book is here since November 10,2015.

Book by Mariah Carey

Now its classic lyrics brings that same holiday spirit to readers of all ages in this one-of-a-kind picture book about a young girl whose greatest Christmas wish is for a new puppy! 

Full of festive December moments with family, friends, presents, and of course, Santa Claus. Featuring lively festive illustrations alongside the complete song lyrics, All I Want for Christmas Is You can be a cherished part of somey family's Christmas traditions.


The singer was set to make her children's book debut with All I Want for Christmas Is You, a picture book inspired by Carey's hit song. 

The book includes a special Christmas letter from Mariah to her fans!

Keeping the song’s title, the Carey penned and Colleen Madden illustrated picture book follows an animated Mariah (meant to be a younger girl as she tries to get a puppy for Christmas). The story stars a young girl who wants to receive a puppy for Christmas as I wrote.

"When I wrote All I Want For Christmas Is You it was my dream for it to become a classic Christmas song," (...) "I am so proud of the song's impact as it continues to create memories for fans each year."

Mariah Carey video scholars will also notice that the book cover, illustrated by Colleen Madden, looks just like animated Mariah in the "Heartbreaker" video by Jay-Z raper, complete with flowing blonde hair covering half her face.

She adds: "I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of the song to new generations of families with the picture book."

Education:

Well, I wrote once about Books & Pop Singers : strategy for new readers, even on my blog for students High on the Clouds by Paul McCarteney.

Mariah Carey is more a reference to parents and teachers. But why not let their little students and kids discover the illustrated book by the singer? She has  deep affection for her Christmas's book. And it seems lovely.

There are Christmas picture books on my shelves which come out year after year, and have done since childhood. Books which are part of family tradition, passed down from generation to generation.

One of the great pleasures of life is to sit near the Christmas tree with a small child and a picture book, taking the time to pore over every illustration, examining every magic detail.

It is always my greatest joy the Christmas' books. And I think all the teachers and parents share the same feeling.

Target: up-to 3-6

I believe that every parent should be closely involved with the books and ideas their children are presented with. And if you find them as compelling as I do, share them with your young students in the classroom. Children love to read aloud and to hear their teacher do it. They look at us so quiet, their eyes brightening as the stars.

So as parents or teachers if you are a fan of All We Want for Christmas' song, the illustraded book can be a lovely for Christmas.

And if you find them as compelling as I do, share them with your young students.

Children's books remember us how magic is childhood.
