A book and CD created by some of the best, no doubt.
Don Gardner has been a children’s entertainer for as longer than I can remember. This song was born in 1944 when he asked a class of second graders to complete the sentence “All I want for Christmas…” And he was confronted with many toothy, lisping smiles.
Katz Cowley and Craig Smith you may recognise as the creators of The Wonky Donkey and Willbee the Bumble Bee. If you haven’t got your hands on those two yet I recommend you do. Both Katz and Craig are brilliant in their fields and when working together never fail to impress.
All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth is about a poor little money who is desperately seeking teeth. Christmas is nearing though so just maybe Santa can help. Beautifully illustrated with cheeky monkey searching for his teeth (though anything will do).
As always with Craig Smith you must listen to the CD. Craig brings magic to music for children with a sense of fun and delight bound to impress all ages.
Perfect for Christmas.
