Summary
In this radiant tale, a young boy in Japan celebrates his very first Christmas. Two cultures joyously combine for the day as the boy's mother shares a glimpse of her American childhood with her son. Allen Say's glowing watercolors and affecting words paint a story rich with the holiday spirit -- a story of family, of giving, of goodwill, and the hope for peace. - Flyleaf
