Children's Book Review: The Perfect Christmas
The Perfect Christmas
Written by: Eileen Spinelli
Illustrated by: JoAnn Adinolfi
Published by: Henry Holt and Company, 2011
Family one: exquisite pastries, a beautifully trimmed tree, and festive cello music. Family two: an artificial tree, rock hard candy, and custom kazoo carols. Full of silly humor, this cheerful picture book proves that no matter how you celebrate Christmas, it’s the spirit of the holiday that counts the most.
* My daughter's eyes lit up as soon as I began reading this book when she realized that one of the main characters shared her name, Abigail. I liked how the book showcased that families can celebrate Christmas differently - fancy and....not so fancy. However, there's something magical about snow on Christmas that touches everyone.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
