Very Best Gift of All based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
I think this is a great book for any young child! It is sure to become a classic. I love how it teaches the importance of reading books.
'Its the punch line...stupid'. I love this book and have given it over and over as a gift. The wife of the governor of Alabama reads the book every holiday season to school children throughout the state. The message 'books are the very best gift' is an important and universal one, charmingly told. Drew Rose's illustrations close the deal.
i could not disagree more! this book took me back to the sweet holiday stories my grandfather used to read to me, with instantly lovable characters and a gentle message. (not to mention the illustrations are incredible.) in this day and age, kids are growing up all too fast¿a neighbor's 5-year-old told me she wants an iPod for christmas. this story returns them to what is really important: life's simple pleasures. my kids beg me to read this book even when it's NOT christmastime!
I couldn't possibly let my child read this book again.. She was bored to death. It was as if the book was written from the perspective of someone who doesn't even know about what children like or about what a child would value the most. My little girl was simply not impressed.
