Praise For…

"This warm tale will brighten spirits with its depiction of a close-knit family happily engaged in a meaningful routine." Kirkus Reviews

"A child’s breathless excitement during the Christmas season resonates in the short, animated sentences." School Library Journal

"A warm celebration of family history and holiday tradition.” The Horn Book

"Whether she makes the ornaments that appear tactile though in only two dimensions or gives us a popcorn strand so real that we can smell its popping in the air, Miki Sato brings us into that living room to open boxes, delicately handle fragile memories, and to enjoy the comfort of family." CanLit for LittleCanadians

“From the textured fabric of the girl’s sweatshirt to the popcorn garlands hanging on the tree, each page contains enough detail to not only keep a child of any age engaged (adults included), but the images are so life-like it feels like you are right there in the living room with them, decorating their tree and thinking about loved ones and the legacy they’ve left behind, symbolized by an ornament that gets displayed only once a year.” —Anne Logan
