Description


Sweet illustrations and simple language bring the holidays to life for the youngest of children.
At Christmastime, a tree from the outside comes inside, just waiting to be decorated. And did you know that some of the tree's ornaments are inspired by outdoor things, too like a snowflake, a ball, a bird, and a star? Spare language and luminous collage paintings offer a fresh, inviting look at well-loved traditions.
