The magic of Christmas is a favorite subject for the author and my kids share this passion - even in the heat of summer.
I never heard of the story of the poinsettia flower. Lovely. And the story of the little girl is empowering.
De Paola has a way to be evocative without overstating, everything is kept simple, serene. Even the poverty of a once-upon-a-time rural context is oddly comforting. Somehow, it makes you feel the wealth we enjoy has, on the way, deprived us of something equally poignant.
I recommend this book.
