A new Christmas classic, now available in stocking-stuffer format
Following in the tradition of their much beloved You Are My I Love You, Maryann Cusimano Love and Satomi Ichikawa's modern Christmas classic You Are My Miracle is now available in board book format. Perfect for sharing between parent and child, this edition is not only more accessible for smaller children, but is the perfect holiday gift--an ideal size and shape for any Christmas stocking.
"...the focus on Ollieand#8217;s childlike anticipation is right on target. Dunreaand#8217;s graceful ink drawings and beautiful washes offer an appealing alternative to more complex, but less satisfying Christmas picture books." October 15, 2008 Booklist, ALA
"Remaining true to his uncomplicated watercolor style, Dunrea maintains an element of charm to Ollieand#8217;s waiting, depicting his impatience as sweet and subdued, rather than manic and obsessed. Parents and children will immediately relate to this youngsterand#8217;s excitement." October, 2008 School Library Journal
