BOOK NOOK REVIEWS: Just Right For Christmas by Birdie Black

TITLE: Just Right For Christmas

AUTHOR: Birdie Black

ILLUSTRATOR: Rosalind Beardshaw

PUBLISHER:  Feiwel and Friends, 2020

SYNOPSIS:

In this celebration of the joy of giving, one snowy Christmas eve, a king buys some soft, red cloth to make the perfect Christmas gift for his daughter. Little does he know that the left-over cloth will be used to make presents for many more of the kingdom’s inhabitants, right down to the last teeny bit of cloth which is made into a scarf just right for a mouse.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : Author Birdie Black creates a sweet story about one piece of bright read cloth’s journey from a royal cloak for a princess all the way to a scarf for a mouse. This picture books invites young readers to realize we are ALL cut from the same cloth, and we ALL deserve the gift of Christmas! A great addition to any library!
