Bells jingle, sleds dash through the snow, trees are topped with sparkling stars, and children everywhere dream of candy canes and presents. But the best gift of all—the most magical gift of the season—is when we spend Christmas with those we love.

Once again, this New York Times-bestselling author and artist has created a special, beautiful book that families will want to share year after year. (And readers will want to look for the Spirit of Christmas image that Nancy has hidden on every page!)

Nancy Tillman is the author and illustrator of theNew York Times best-selling picture bookOn the Night You Were Born and its companion journal,The Wonder of You: A Book for Celebrating Baby's First Year. Her other books includeWherever You Are: My Love Will Find You andTumford the Terrible. A former advertising executive, Tillman now writes and illustrates full-time. She lives in Tualatin, Oregon.

“Tillman (On the Night You Were Born) expertly swirls together reality and fantasy--the narrator's child delights in the sight of the decorated tree, the lion lies down with the lamb--as is fitting for such a magical night.” —Shelf-Awareness

“Handsomely illustrated, this Christmas book is bound to be hyped as the perfect seasonal gift. …Tillman's sentimental sensibility and beautiful artwork ensure that this will become a popular choice at holiday time.” —Booklist

“A beautiful and timeless book.” —School Library Journal

“As the adult speaker of the story nods off in a comfy red chair, the Spirit of Christmas appears, ready to get the narrator in the holiday spirit. What follows is a buoyant, imagistic tribute to the season, as the Spirit lists joys both and intangible, before offering the reminder: ‘Because it took nothing but love to begin it,/ it's not really Christmas if love isn't in it.' Tillman's ethereal illustrations are surreal but captivating.” —Publishers Weekly

“Bestselling author Tillman offers a dreamlike interpretation of the collective spirit that permeates the holiday.” —Kirkus Reviews

“As inOn the Night You Were Born, the words directly address a young listener with comforting, fanciful imagery . . . Culminating in a final scene of a sleeping child in a floating bed under a watchful moon, this gentle, tender offering will buoy children with its strong messages of safety and love.” —Booklist, for It's Time to Sleep, My Love

“A luxuriant bedtime retreat for children and parents alike.” —Kirkus Reviews, for It's Time to Sleep, My Love

“This is one of those rare baby books that should make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy.” —Publishers Weekly, for On the Night You Were Born

“A beautiful tribute to the uniqueness of every child.” —Kirkus Reviews, for On the Night You Were Born

“Many parents will welcome this opportunity to tell their children how special and loved they are.” —Booklist, for On the Night You Were Born
