Product Description

Artist and musician, Mike McMath was inspired to write a fun holiday song by his 1st grade daughter’s short story. “I always thought it was a naive and unique look at Christmas that would make a great children’s book. Surprisingly the song came first,” Mike said of his daughter’s story. He spent two years creating 16 canvas illustrations for a book based on the song. This whimsical tale accompanied by stunning illustrations, will be a family treasure that can be read to children every holiday season.
