Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ann Farina
Emily loves Christmas. More importantly, she loves giving presents during the holidays. Some of her presents come in packages with pretty ribbon, and some are acts of kindness and consideration. Emily leads young readers through the holiday hubbub with grace and style. She models good manners in a friendly way that invites readers to be just as caring. Emily also helps children understand why adults can get so frazzled during the busy holiday season. Her thoughtful gifts help keep everything running smoothly. The illustrations are bright and colorful. The energetic drawings of Emily show how happy and proud she is to help out. What reader wouldn't want to feel the same? Young readers will enjoy finding the helpful Christmas elf hidden in each illustration. A letter to parents at the end of the book shares helpful etiquette hints from the authors. Teachers can use this "Emily" book for any good manners or etiquette themed lesson, or they can add it to any holiday bookshelf. Reviewer: Ann Farina

Gr 1-4

Emily loves everything about Christmas, especially giving gifts. Her favorite kinds aren't those that can be wrapped up and put under the tree, but are the true treasures of kindness and consideration. She sets the table and makes special place cards for Christmas dinner, helps Dad put up the lights; she pushes a girl's wheelchair while waiting in line to see Santa and helps the little kids dress for a Christmas pageant. Her cheery do-gooder activities are conveyed perfectly via single- and double-page cartoon vignettes done in ink and watercolor. Emily's willingness to be helpful offers an outstanding lesson about the true spirit of Christmas, and Björkman's bright, engaging illustrations keep the lesson light and palatable.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library

Kirkus Reviews
Senning and Post (both of the Emily Post Institute) continue their series on appropriate children's manners with this holiday offering starring their signature character, a girl appropriately named Emily. She is an amazingly well-mannered child who loves the Christmas season and all the preparations for the holiday. The text focuses on the many ways that Emily helps others, firmly stating that such gifts of time and labor are as valuable as material presents. Emily is shown doing household chores, helping friends and family and assisting others that she has just met. On Christmas Eve, Emily leaves a polite and proper letter for Santa, and she receives her own thank-you note from Santa in return. While helping others and sending courteous notes are worthwhile objectives, the lessons in manners are delivered here in a heavy-handed way that will appeal more to grown-ups than children. Bjorkman's amusing watercolor-and-ink illustrations in his characteristic, loose style have a light, frothy appeal, conveying the excitement and emotion of the season, but they aren't enough to leaven the didactic text.
