It’s the most wonderful time of the year and a mother and daughter are enjoying the sights and sounds of the holiday season. The little girl hears sleigh bells ringing and carolers singing. She smells chestnuts roasting–CRUNCH! CRUNCH! CRUNCH!–and sees the flashing lights of the department store windows–BLING! BLING! BLING! She spreads the spirit of giving wherever she goes. And when she reaches Santa she tells him her Christmas wish–for peace and love everywhere all the days of the year.
Christmas spirit is expressed in joyous and reflective onomatopoeic exclamations in this new holiday staple . . . Snowflakes flutter across bright illustrations encouraging readers to inhale feel taste and listen to all things Christmas as embodied in loving detail in the rhythmic language. . . . Soul-stirring and sure to put readers in a festive mood.” –Kirkus Reviews
“Morrison’s oil paintings capture the crackling energy of a city preparing for Christmas; the married coauthors’ message about cultivating kindness gratitude and community the whole year through sings on the page.” – Publishers Weekly
