The Best Christmas Ever

Chih-Yuan Chen, Author . Heryin Books $13.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-9762056-2-3

A small bear with a big heart makes the holiday merry and bright for his family in Chen's (On My Way to Buy Eggs ) tenderhearted tale featuring mixed-media illustrations as sublimely sweet as sugarplums. Little Bear intuitively knows that with his father out of work there will be no gifts this Christmas. But unbeknownst to his siblings and parents (though eagle-eye readers will spot the visual clues), the cub sets about acquiring the kind of thoughtful presents—believed to be from Santa—that make the Bears' holiday shine with love. The perfect pairing of message and image is truly a holiday treat. Ages 4-up. (Dec.)
