Format: Board Book

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4

Genre:  Christmas board book

What did you like about the book? Spanish language version of Tillman’s 2009 book, The Spirit of Christmas. Rhyming text and gorgeous painterly digital illustrations go depict a child’s search for the meaning in Christmas. All the familiar Christmas images are there, with love being the over arching message. Sentimental and sweet.

Anything you didn’t like about it? Why a board book?  The details in Tillman’s illustrations are too small to fully appreciate in this version.

To whom would you recommend this book?  Spanish language collections

Who should buy this book? Public libraries

Where would you shelve it ? Spanish language sections/Christmas

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City and State: Stephanie Tournas, Robbins Library, Arlington, MA
