Laura Vaccaro Seeger's acrylic paintings are lovingly artsy, and the whole book is a feast for sights.

"The 12 Sleighs of Christmas" by Sherri Duskey Rinker; illustrated by Jake Parker; Chronicle Books; 32 pages; $16.99.

With this fast-moving picture book, the author of another fun vehicle tale, "Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site," takes Santa's elves' imaginations on a wild ride. When they discover his sleigh is a mess, they envision sleighs of all kinds, from motorcycles to zeppelins to big rigs and more.

With rhyming text and detailed illustrations to thrill car and truck fans, "The 12 Sleighs of Christmas" is a must-read-aloud for active kids.

"Danny and the Dinosaur: A Very Dino Christmas," by Syd Hoff; illustrated by Syd Hoff and David Cutting; HarperCollins; 36 pages; $6.99.
