Publisher's Weekly Review

Anglund's (Christmas Is Love) trademark chubby-cheeked children dot the pages of this small-format holiday anthology. Gathering traditional carols and customs from around the world, along with original poems (plus a recipe for gingerbread cookies), she creates idealized scenes of innocent, old-fashioned festivity, brightly bordered in red and green. Anglund's many fans will be pleased. All ages. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-There may be grandmothers and aunts, remembering these round-faced children with no mouths from the heyday of Anglund's popularity in the 1960s, who will welcome this collection of miscellaneous Christmas lore and customs, some poetry by the author, a recipe for gingerbread, and the lyrics to "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" and "Jingle Bells." With its small trim size, its place on the first page for the name of the person to whom it is given, and its sentimental illustrations, this looks more like a gift book than a likely addition to library collections. Bookstores will probably carry this title; libraries needn't bother.-V. W. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
