    Should become a classic

    I picked this up because the front cover was so pretty and I was looking for a book that would help me explain Christmas to my 2 year old daughter. The story doesn't really get in to Santa or the Nativity, I bought other books for that, but talked more about the feelings you have at Christmas and the importance of being with loved ones. As I read it to my 2 year old, I realized that I could have just as easily read it to my 29 year old daughter who no longer lives at home. Out of the many books I bought about Christmas this one is my favorite, it is a beautiful book.

    Beautiful Gift

    This book is another blessing from the immensely talented Ms. Tillman. It makes a great gift, with its rich delicious colors, characters and a story that brings warmth to the soul on even the coldest night. Despite the whimsical charm of a classic children's picture book, this one is for the whole family. In an age of iPods and Wii's, this book offers a chance to get back to the basics of what the holidays are all about.

    As good as all of Ms Tillmans' books.

    Nancy Tillmans' books always bring a tear to my eye. I buy them for shower gifts and then send them to my grown children to pass on.

    The Spirit of Christmas was another Kohl's Cares find. I'll try

    The Spirit of Christmas was another Kohl's Cares find. I'll try not to gush, but I do love the Kohl's Cares program. This book came with an adorable plush lion, which represents the most striking illustration in this book. All of the artwork is truly beautiful, but the double pages containing the lion, lamb and dove and arresting in their simplicity and beauty.
    The words for the book again came from a song, so they again read like a poem. The words are fine, and at time quite good; however this book with a lesser artist would not have worked nearly as well.

    This is nice, but...

    The text was like a modern "Night Before Christmas" poem, and the illustrations were colorful, but it just didn't ring the bells for me. Kind of squeaked of political correctness. Seemed a little distant and impersonal.

    Another Winner

    Nancy Tillman has produced another winner. This book tugs at the heart strings because it says"I will love you forever".

    The Perfect Christmas Gift!

    The Spirit of Christmas is a beautifully written tribute to the real meaning of Christmas. I picked it up in the store and was so taken with the story and the illustrations that I decided to purchase a copy for each of the three children for whom I was buying holiday gifts. I am certain that they will want to read it or have it read to them over and over again!
