This is the type of book that you give to a child and then 20 years later they spend a good chunk of time searching for it because all they remember about it is the beautiful illustrations and the fact that it was a staple in their reading every holiday season. (Am I saying this from personal experience? Maybe). Which is to say: Give any child in your life a gift for now AND for later!
