LOVE Jan Brett!,
This review is from: Home for Christmas (Hardcover)
If you have a school-age child, then you have probably heard of and read Jan Brett books. Teachers love her books! The artwork is amazing with so much detail. Her books need to be savored, turning the pages slowly and making sure you see everything going on in all of the borders. Home for Christmas is a cute story about a little troll name Rollo who doesn't want to do chores. He hasn't lost his tail yet, because he needs to do his chores and be kind and helpful. Brett takes us on a journey through the Arctic North of Sweden (where she travelled to do research to write this book) with Rollo, as he meets new animal friends, and comes to realize that he wants to be home with his family for Christmas. It was fun having the kids identify the animals as Rollo met them. And I can't reiterate enough how beautiful the illustrations are. Definitely a worthwhile holiday read!
