Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3–Each of these regional titles begins with a map and a letter from one cousin to another about an upcoming visit. The books can be used either as holiday songbooks (each with its own version of the standard) or as a mini travelogue, as every other page includes a letter home about the sights visited in each area, including historical tidbits. New York City includes sidewalk Santas, bridges gleaming, and a pigeon in a Central Park tree. Virginia features tall ships, guiding lights (lighthouses), and a cardinal in a dogwood tree. California highlights hummingbirds, cable cars, and a quail in a redwood tree. Bright and colorful cartoon art makes these books acceptable additions for libraries in the featured states.–Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library
