Holiday Book Signing: "Counting to Christmas" and "The Donkey's Christmas Song" with Nancy Tafuri

Join us for an exciting, holiday themed book signing event with children's book author and illustrator Nancy Tafuri!

Counting to Christmas  

Celebrate with the lucky child in this book as she counts the days of Christmas. 

With growing excitement, she makes cards, bakes cookies, strings popcorn and cranberries, decorates the tree, performs in a recital, and makes treats for the wild animals, until, at last– it’s Christmas Day!


The Donkey's Christmas Song 

Under a bright star, a long, long time ago... a special baby is born in a stable, and the shy little donkey wants to be the first of the animals to sing his song of welcome. But he is afraid his bray will sound too rough.

Lyrically told, and illustrated with large, richly hued images a glow with starlight, this joyous picture book is the perfect way to welcome young children into  the  wonder  of  the  first  Christmas.


Nancy Tafuri is probably best known as the creator of Have You Seen My Duckling?, a 1985 Caldecott Honor Book described by Parent's Choice as "beautifully precise yet emotionally affecting." Trained as a graphic designer, Tafuri has authored more than 50 books over 30 years for the very young. Follow on Facebook ~ Nancy Tafuri (Children's Author/Illustrator) and visit her website at
