K-Gr 2-Anna tells her little brother how to know that Christmas is coming, since he wasn't there last year. She talks about lights and trees and decorations and relatives visiting, and sugar cookies, of course. Conversational prose complements spreads that feature impressionistic pastel colors. Some pages also include vignettes, and all elements combine successfully to present an older sister's perspective and love-filled explanations.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public LibraryCopyright 2007 Reed Business Information
