Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

An eight-year-old boy narrates this first-person story in lockstep rhyme about his family's cross-country travels to celebrate Christmas with far-flung relatives and friends. They start in California and zigzag back and forth across the United States for 17 Christmas celebrations with grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends, before returning to their own home in Kentucky in January. The text has a strong Evangelical Christian slant, with many references to Jesus and the Nativity story as well as praying "that Christ's love spreads to all of the nations!" Bright illustrations in deep hues depict the crowd of relatives and the family's trusty station wagon buzzing along from state to state (with little sense of fuel economy, greenhouse-gas emissions or geographic logic). Endpaper maps show smiling relatives standing in their appropriate locations, though the states are not identified. (Picture book. 5-9)

Chapter One

Seventeen Christmases all in a row! Get packing! Get cracking! Get ready to go!

With all kinds of kinfolk we really must see, We're wrapping And mapping And ready to flee!

But it's weeks before Christmas ... at least two or three.

We reach Colorado to see Uncle Zeke, Who lives in a cabin on top of Pikes Peak. We build us a snowman-it looks like Aunt Jo- Then fall to the ground and make angels of snow. Three Christmases down, and just fourteen to go!

Now we're off to my aunt's ranch in ...
