From School Library Journal
Originally written for second graders to perform, this rhyming alphabet introduces events, people, animals, and words associated with Christmas. Mixed-media collages use watercolor, cut paper, and fine lines to depict in a folk-art style the many tableaux. The background of each double-page spread features one color decorated in tiny starbursts of dots with rectangles of text and picture. Each couplet can be easily memorized by seven or eight year olds and would make a unique program; however, it would be a shame to miss the brightly colored, richly textured illustrations.
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.
The richly textured illustrations by acclaimed artist Elisa Kleven are mixed-media collages of watercolors, cut paper, and fine lines that depict the story in a folk-art style. Originally published in 1990, the book was selected as an American Bookseller “Pick of the List” and is being reintroduced for its 25th anniversary.
