Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Puerto Rico is the setting for writer/illustrator Roth's Another Christmas. The bright collages give voice to the sparkle of turquoise waters and counter the dark feelings of Ben who is grieving his grandfather's death. Ben and his grandmother love the snow and cold, but Ben's parents think this setting far from home will ease everyone's pain. Ben's grandmother leads him in a special healing process that begins with an appreciation of the difference and sameness of Puerto Rican and American celebrations. She ends the tour with a secret celebration, opening a suitcase stuffed with the things that make their Christmas special. They sing carols, decorate a tree, eat gingerbread, and hug and cry in room that feels properly Christmasy-cold because of the air conditioning. The different traditions and the difference of celebrating without Ben's grandfather come together as his grandmother tells him: "It's still Merry Christmas only a little different from the Christmas we know." The message of healing may make this book an excellent choice for a family that is remembering loss as well as joy during the holiday season.
Kathryn Broderick
Roth once again uses colorful cut-paper collage to make a spirited book. It opens in the winter wonderland of a North American family's Christmas, then on the next spread hits the reader with Grandpa's death and a portrait of the family grieving. For the following Christmas, Mom and Dad suggest a change of scene to son Ben. Off they fly--with Grandma--to the shining sea and bright colors of Puerto Rico. Grandma and grandson explore unfamiliar territory, finding similarities in the Christmas images of the island. But Grandma surprises everyone when she brings a little bit of Christmas past to the new scene. From her suitcase she pulls gingerbread cookies, Christmas decorations, sweaters because the air conditioning has been turned up high, and Grandpa's angel. Dancing to an island beat, the family remembers its loved one, and continues on in celebration of another Christmas together.
