The Christmas book has rhymes which describe what happens when twenty-six relatives stay together during the Christmas holidays. The small house is crowded. Sleeping quarters for the twenty-six are difficult to find. The resourceful relatives find creative places and positions in which to sleep.
The relatives’ names range from A to Z. The story ends when the last person, Zachary (Z), goes to sleep under the Christmas tree. The others are sleep in a chair, on a stair, on the floor and other places.
The picture book’s illustrations are by Joni Oeltjenbruns. All the relatives’ names are either in red or green. There are traditional holiday decorations such as a Christmas tree, ornaments, snow angels and garlands. All decorations are in bright colors.
