Not so much about Christmas as about putting together the party to celebrate, this lively, vibrant book is a joy. So many versions of this favorite carol have been created, from the traditional to other regional adaptations; this is a particularly fun and lively version, a festival in itself. Ashley Wolff's artwork in gouache and pastel brings a warm festive life to the fun, and gives the reader much to look at.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
