Bells jingle, sleds dash through the snow, trees are topped with sparkling stars, and children everywhere dream of candy canes and presents. But the best gift of all-the most magical gift of the season-is when we spend Christmas with those we love. Once again, this New York Times-bestselling author and artist has created a special, beautiful book that families will want to share year after year. (And readers will want to look for the Spirit of Christmas image that Nancy Tillman has hidden on every page!)
Nancy Tillmans’ illustrations are always simultaneously stunning, soothing and original, and this book is no exception. Combined with the lovely, musical rhymes and wonderfully sweet message, this is one that’s both pleasing to read aloud and listen to!
The illustrations in this book are gorgeous! I love the rhyme and the sweet, feel-good story about the importance of family around Christmas time.
