Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3-On Christmas Eve at the marketplace, a king finds a roll of cloth that is "red, soft, and Christmassy" and asks his sewing maids to make a cloak for his daughter. The kitchen maid finds the leftover bits of fabric outside the back door and uses them to make a red jacket for her mother, leaving even smaller scraps for Bertie Badger, Samuel Squirrel, and Milly Mouse to make their own gifts. This is a delightful tale with a nice rhyming cadence, a well-paced and clever buildup, and satisfying ending. The vibrant acrylic illustrations are charming and filled with action, fine for group storytime or bedtime sharing.-Maureen Wade, Los Angeles Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

One Christmas Eve, a king purchases a bolt of cloth from an outdoor market: “That cloth is so red and soft and Christmassy!” Perfect, in fact, to make a cloak for the princess. What the king does not expect, though, is that the leftover scraps from the cloth, set outside the back door, hold an equal appeal for others. Before night falls, the castle’s kitchen maid finds the scraps and sews a jacket for her ma; a badger makes a hat for his pa; a squirrel sews gloves for his wife; and a mouse creates a scarf for her son. With its catchy repetitive phrases, this book is perfect for the preschool child or emergent reader, who can anticipate what will come next. The endearing mixed-media illustrations, often arranged on the page within a simple sewing pattern, effectively capture the joy of the season. The warm message of the closeness of family pervades both text and pictures, and the final two-page spread brings all the inhabitants together, ice-skating in their brand-new finery—a lovely communal touch. Preschool-Grade 1. --Patricia Austin

I ordered 3 of these books for Christmas. The message of Christmas sharing is excellent, pictures are nice and bright. The children I bought for are probably a little young to get the message, but it is a cute story.

This is a wonderful story of what is leftovers, or trash, for one is something perfect, or "Just Right" as the title states, for another. I purchased this book for my personal collection, but I will certainly be using it for my preschool storytime at the library!

I liked it more than the 3 year old. Tale of how everyone gets joy no matter how small from a bolt of cloth. Encourages gratitude, resourcefulness, recycling and creativity.
