Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
By this book's end, readers will know why evergreens and teddy bears have long been part of Christmas, and why presents that don't seem perfect still can bring joy. While meandering from his winter cave, a curious bear cub named Pip encounters several new sights—a cabin, people and a pine tree named Evergreen. Evergreen tells Pip she is the only tree that gets to stay awake during winter, and therefore gets to see the best part of the season—Christmas. Through a window, Evergreen and Pip watch the people—who had no fur and "walked on two legs instead of four," says Pip—prepare for Christmas. Evergreen teaches Pip about the decorations, songs, cookies and gifts associated with the holiday. Children will enjoy watching Pip's reaction as the holiday is introduced to him and he attempts to "feel Christmas." He does so not by receiving a gift from Evergreen, but by giving her a gift. The watercolor illustrations are so fresh that you feel the coziness of the forest and almost smell the pine in the air. This is a nice story for any time of year. As Pip discovers the joy in giving, perhaps children will, too. The book is part of the "Hello Reader" series, Level 2. It includes simple suggestions for helping children get the most enjoyment and benefit from reading. 1999, Scholastic, $3.99. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Todd Moning
