Description

"Tillman (On the Night You Were Born) expertly swirls together reality and fantasy--the narrator's child delights in the sight of the decorated tree, the lion lies down with the lamb--as is fitting for such a magical night." --Shelf Awareness

"Handsomely illustrated, this Christmas book is bound to be hyped as the perfect seasonal gift. ...Tillman's sentimental sensibility and beautiful artwork ensure that this will become a popular choice at holiday time." --Booklist

"A beautiful and timeless book." --School Library Journal

"As the adult speaker of the story nods off in a comfy red chair, the Spirit of Christmas appears, ready to get the narrator in the holiday spirit. What follows is a buoyant, imagistic tribute to the season, as the Spirit lists joys both and intangible, before offering the reminder: 'Because it took nothing but love to begin it, / it's not really Christmas if love isn't in it.' Tillman's ethereal illustrations are surreal but captivating." --Publishers Weekly

"Bestselling author Tillman offers a dreamlike interpretation of the collective spirit that permeates the holiday." --Kirkus Reviews

"The wonderful colored illustrations convey a sense of joy and peace." --Children's Literature

"This is one of those rare baby books that should make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy." --Publishers Weekly on On the Night You Were Born

"A beautiful tribute to the uniqueness of every child." --Kirkus Reviews on On the Night You Were Born

"Many parents will welcome this opportunity to tell their children how special and loved they are." --Booklist on On the Night You Were Born
