About the Book



This beautiful picture book captures the essence of Christmas. With glorious verse and artwork, the "New York Times"-bestselling author of "On the Night You Were Born" celebrates all the special moments, the heart, and the soul of the holiday season. Full color.



Book Synopsis



Bells jingle, sleds dash through the snow, trees are topped with sparkling stars, and children everywhere dream of candy canes and presents. But the best gift of all-the most magical gift of the season-is when we spend Christmas with those we love.

Once again, this New York Times-bestselling author and artist has created a special, beautiful book that families will want to share year after year. (And readers will want to look for the Spirit of Christmas image that Nancy Tillman has hidden on every page!)



Review Quotes



"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

"As in On the Night You Were Born, the words directly address a young listener with comforting, fanciful imagery . . . Culminating in a final scene of a sleeping child in a floating bed under a watchful moon, this gentle, tender offering will buoy children with its strong messages of safety and love." --Booklist on It's Time to Sleep, My Love

"A luxuriant bedtime retreat for children and parents alike." --Kirkus Reviews on It's Time to Sleep, My Love

"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

I discovered Nancy Tillman's books a couple of years ago and love every one of them! Not only does each one contain amazing artwork, the text is wonderful! I've shed more than one tear when reading them, especially when reading them for the first time. You can't go wrong with any of her books! The board books are especially great for babies and toddlers.
