^Why didn't you like this book Virgo? I just finished it and overall really enjoyed. I was though very surprised by the illustration of Mr. And Mrs. Stone on page 84. They look SO much younger than I had always imagined. Watson looks more like Richard in his picture. Is the book when Karen goes to Farm Camp the one where that friend of hers from Nebraska (Tia)? comes to visit the only LS Stones mention? Emily Michelle did get a little old and I noticed that Mrs. Stone asked Nannie first not Elizabeth or Watson if she wanted to bring Emily inside. The only sad and strange thing to me was that Lisa and Seth had no part. I get it was a "big house" month but, IDK, just seemed like at Christmas there'd be some mention of Lisa and Seth and in a more "live" way other than Seth and his carpenter friends helping build booths--which was very cool, btw. The more LS books I read the bigger a Seth fan I become. I sort of wished we had gotten to also read about the BSC helping directly (their POV's) but I also liked that we didn't. I say that because we got to read more about the Thomas-Brewers as a family. P.s. Did any of you have glow in the dark shoelaces? Those sounded very cool. That was the gift Hannie gave to Nancy and Karen.
Emily is so cute in the illustrations in this one.
It makes me laugh every time that the winner of the snow sculpture contest made a snow angel, especially since this is not the only LS book where a snow angel wins a sculpture contest. I know it's probably meant to imply that the winner made snow wings and a halo on their snow sculpture but I just picture them flopping in the snow, whipping their arms and legs up and down, and yelling out "DONE!"
