Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5^-8. A small girl tells of Christmas Eve during the Depression, when there is no family Christmas tree, but she and her parents decorate their old sleigh and their horse, Star. As they travel over roads piled high with snow to the church in the valley, she looks forward to the Christmas service and the mitten tree with its community presents of mittens, oranges, and candy. When they get there, they discover that the tree has been stolen and the gifts are gone. Then, as some of the church members prepare the farm animals for the manger scene, a miracle happens: there is a glimpse of a Santa figure, and the gifts are restored. Himler's pictures contrast the fields of snow in the blue-toned moonlight with the cozy interior of the church in warm shades of brown. The child is quietly individualized, part of family, community, and the natural world. --Hazel Rochman"
