A familiar Christmas carol gets new life in Susan Jeffers’s Jingle Bells. The book showcases the wintry travels of a young boy and girl and their dog as they journey through the deep snow in a sleigh. They are joined at various points by a variety of snow animals but finally arrive safely to their destination, where they observe the festivities and warmth of Christmas with none other than Santa Claus himself. The story takes place over the backdrop of the familiar words of “Jingle Bells.”
