The Perfect Christmas

(2) K-3 Illustrated by JoAnn Adinolfi. Abigail Archer (The Perfect Thanksgiving) and her family do Christmas Martha Stewart–style. Taking a less-manicured approach, the narrator's family pulls out the old fake tree and the bargain bin decorations. A Christmas snowfall brings both families outside "together / laughing and dancing / through the snow." Jolly collage art ties it all together, depicting each family's traditions with finesse.
