Summary
Illustrated by Chandra Cox. In this poetic and delightfully original Christmas story, a young boy is looking forward to his favourite holiday. But after thinking about the presents and the big tree his family will have, he remembers that there are other kids who don't have any. Realising that Christmas is really about community, people coming together and helping each other, his thoughtfulness leads to a magical celebration of the real spirit of Christmas. Includes a resource list and ideas for getting involved in your own community. Ages 5 and up.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Preaching community involvement, Medina's (DeShawn Days) well-meaning but heavy-handed story traces a boy's changing consciousness of the holidays: "Christmas makes me think/ of how much better it would be to/ .../ visit a turkey or a pig and instead/ of eating one feed it!" The spunky young narrator is appealing, and newcomer Cox's blindingly bright palette contrasts with the usual holiday palette. Ages 5-up. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
