"Little Jeanne-Marie's Christmas plans are now topsy-turvy thanks to the chicken pox and, sadly, she is unable to shop for holiday gifts for her family. Her Grand-maman saves the day by teaching Jeanne-Marie that often the most perfect gifts are those that come from the heart. Author Paula Blais Gorgas has given us a delightful, intergenerational story about the true meaning of the spirit of giving. Young readers will love this story and read it again and again."
~ L. Langley [FIVE STARS]

"Young readers will be drawn into Gorgas' second holiday picture book by the promise of the perfect present, purple at that. They will stay engaged from the first sentence, which reveals the young heroine's dilemma: Jeanne-Marie is quarantined with chicken pox the week before Christmas and cannot leave home to buy gifts for her family. While members of her family try to console her with predictable suggestions, it's Jeanne-Marie's empathetic Grand Maman who helps her tie loose ends together just in time to present her family a unique contribution to their Christmas celebration. Taylor's lively and colorful characters reflect the story accurately... This story, drawn from Gorgas' childhood experience, belongs high on the stack of Christmas read-aloud books."
~ Carole Gill, Children's and Young Adult Librarian [FOUR STARS]
