Just Right for Christmas by Black and Beardshaw - ESSENTIAL

Black, Birdie and Rosalind Beardshaw Just Right for Christmas.  Nosy Crow (Candlewick), 2012.  $16.  Content: G.  PICTURE BOOK.  

After the king has his seamstresses make a soft, large, red cloak for his daughter, the scraps pass from hand to hand, as consecutive users make more cozy, soft red gifts, until a scrap, just right for a little mouse, is all that is left.  

Ok – Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree is one of my absolute favorite Christmas books and this book plays upon that tradition in a perfect new way.  Love, Love, love it!
