This is one of our favorite Angelina books. The story teaches us a great lesson of kindness and generosity. I can't think of a nicer Christmas story for a young child.

As with the other Angelina Ballerina books, this one is beautifully and meticulously illustrated. The story itself is also lovely, with a wonderful message of kindness very fitting for the Christmas season. My three-yr-old and I love this book.

I bought this book for my 2 year granddaughter. She loved it and had me read it over again. The artwork is adorable.
