As always, Tomie dePaola provides beautiful, sweet illustrations and wonderful vocabulary (including some Spanish) to retell this holiday legend. This is a great teaching tool for the symbol of the poinsettia; and lends to great art and writing projects at school. I also used this book tucked in a sprig of poinsettias as a beautiful and well received centerpiece for tables at a teachers meeting.

I am really annoyed that I purchased this on my ipad and the format is not supported in the app. A complete waste of money!
