'Colorful illustrations and simple words in this utterly charming story introduce babies and toddlers to the joy of preparing for Christmas… Ideal and unreservedly recommended.'

-- Midwest Book Review

'Kwant's art is the star of this simple story. Rendered in soft colored pencil or oil pastels, the scenes beautifully evoke the playful joy of decorating a tree.'

-- Kirkus Reviews

'The illustrations have a soft crayon-like texture and are mainly in Christmas hues of blue, green, gold and red. A nice addition to the Pip the Gnome series and holiday stories.'
