Here's a Christmas board book for little ones who want their beloved pets to share the joys of the season. It opens on a tabby kitten gazing out a snow-edged window: 'Peering out the window, / watching snowflakes fall, / I wait for Santa / to bring fun gifts for all!'

An adorable Santa Cat follows. Then we see pets in scarves and hats, settled amongst holiday decorations, resting angelically, playing the piano, being naughty and nice, and preparing gifts. Finally they celebrate the season: 'Now let's raise a toast / of holiday cheer: / Here's to a merry Christmas, / and a furry happy New Year!'

Rachel Hale's new Paw Pals offering, Santa Paws, is guaranteed to elicit Awwwws as readers young and old browse the cute photos within.
