Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In Feliz Navidad, singer/songwriter Jose Feliciano's beloved Christmas song comes to life with Caldecott Medal recipient David Diaz's lush, expressive illustrations. The lyrics (and picture book text) are simple, but Diaz's bold illustrations are rich and intense--families and friends gather in swirly, stylized paintings, caroling and sharing festive foods. The "Two Stories" in the subtitle are a bit hard to decipher from the pictures, but Feliciano's introduction describes both the Puerto Rican tradition of parranda (caroling and feasting), and the customs of colder climates: Christmas trees, poinsettias, hot cider, and snowmen. Feliz Navidad will undoubtedly become an annual family tradition in its own right. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-Like an oversized, multipaged, bilingual Christmas card, this gorgeous production's minimal text consists of the lyrics to Feliciano's famous song and emphatically wishes readers both Feliz Navidad and a Merry Christmas. Beautifully designed pages feature Diaz's characteristic stylized paintings and song lyrics in large, faux hand-lettered font. The pictures make reference to and contrast many Christmas traditions and symbols, and show that all cultures emphasize families and friends celebrating together. Two introductory pages introduce the parranda as a long-standing tradition in Puerto Rico and (somewhat gratuitously) a paragraph explains that "Christmas crosses all cultural boundaries." The subtitle depends on a very close reading of the pictures to decipher the two stories. Musical notation is not included.-S. P.

This is one of my favorite Christmas books. Cheers!

The artwork of David Diaz is quite striking, and it's the perfect match for José Feliciano's famous song. The mix of these two talented artists make for a lively read during the holidays.

I loved the book. Although this is his favorite song, I'm not sure my four year old grandson appreciates the beauty of the illustrations yet.
