This is one of our favorite Angelina books. The story teaches us a great lesson of kindness and generosity. I can't think of a nicer Christmas story for a young child.

As with the other Angelina Ballerina books, this one is beautifully and meticulously illustrated. The story itself is also lovely, with a wonderful message of kindness very fitting for the Christmas season. My three-yr-old and I love this book.

Genre: FantasyAge Appropriateness: PrimaryReview: This book is a good example of fantasy because the story includes a personified mouse, Angelina Ballerina. One day, she sees old Mr. Bell all alone in his cottage at Christmastime. She decides to bring him some holiday cheer. At the same time, Henry, her little cousin, is worrying that he won¿t see Santa Clause. She brings gifts to Mr. Bell with Henry, and they realize there¿s a real live Santa Clause in their own town and it is Mr. Bell. This story is believable but would not happen in reality because of the personified animals. Media: This book is a good example of ink and wash and pencils. The characters are drawn with pencils to emphasize detail. Other background scenery is created with ink and wash. The illustrator captures the readers with the colors and detailed pictures.

Angelina notices that her elderly neighbor Mr. Bell is all alone and prepares a Christmas surprise for him. Mr. Bell comes to their Christmas show as Santa, and is never lonely at Christmas again because he is asked back every year.
