Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4–Emily loves everything about Christmas, especially giving gifts. Her favorite kinds aren't those that can be wrapped up and put under the tree, but are the true treasures of kindness and consideration. She sets the table and makes special place cards for Christmas dinner, helps Dad put up the lights; she pushes a girl's wheelchair while waiting in line to see Santa and helps the little kids dress for a Christmas pageant. Her cheery do-gooder activities are conveyed perfectly via single- and double-page cartoon vignettes done in ink and watercolor. Emily's willingness to be helpful offers an outstanding lesson about the true spirit of Christmas, and Björkman's bright, engaging illustrations keep the lesson light and palatable.–Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library

This is Mike Gutch's first children's book other than his unpublished "book" he wrote in third grade about New York State, which coincidentally is where he resides, in the town of Pelham, just outside of New York City. Mike lives with his wife and four children. When he's not making peanut butter and honey sandwiches for them or working for the Man, he's enjoying the great outdoors. If you'd like to send him a note on the book or advice on how to get anything unstuck, you can email him at mikestuckgutch@gmail.com.

Steve Bjorkman has illustrated more than seventy books for children, including the New York Times bestselling Dirt on My Shirt by Jeff Foxworthy, Emily's Everyday Manners by Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, I Hate English! by Ellen Levine, and Safari Park by Stuart J. Murphy. He also creates greeting cards with his brother, Carl, and together they have sold millions through Recycled Paper Greetings. Steve lives with his wife and three children in Irvine, California.



Peggy Post, Emily Post’s great-granddaughter-in-law, is a director of The Emily Post Institute and the author of more than a dozen books. Peggy writes a monthly column in Good Housekeeping and an online wedding etiquette column for the New York Times.

Cute, colorful, and bright book. My 4-year old daughter loves the illustrations, but I was a little disappointed in the text--it doesn't quite bring home it's point about the spirit of Christmas. It's very light-hearted and sweet though.

This is definitely one of our favorite Christmas books to read to our girls; they love it as well! It has a great message, and I think helps them understand adults' emotions during the holiday season...and reminds them that we all need to help each other out so the season can be more enjoyable! I highly recommend this book!

Not pleased with this book -- I love social graces and etiquette and thought this would introduce something genteel into Christmas customs. It does not.
