KIRKUS REVIEW

 Sharing a bedtime snack on Christmas Eve, a dark-eyed family of four reminisces about their tree ornaments, each laden with family history: a walnut cradle made during the Christmas baking, origami from the museum, a starfish Santa that recalls a summer trip, gifts from near and dear, and more. Each double spread shows the family by their tree and also depicts their happily remembered experiences, all in Aliki's comfortably realistic style. Off to bed at last, they leave snacks for Santa and for Nefi. A warm evocation of the value of family tradition. (Picture book. 4-8)
