Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—A Texas take on the traditional poem, featuring an eager-to-please cowboy who kicks off Christmas by giving his "darlin'" a mockingbird in a gum tree. After he inundates her with everything from "broncos bucking" and "longhorns leaping" to oil wells and armadillos, she collapses in a happy heap. Simple, bright, folksy illustrations assist in capturing the regional flavor of the text, which will be appreciated most by those from the Lone Star state.—Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library
