A warmhearted, whimsical story with a folkloric feel and a theme that is anything but small.
A boy with grand holiday expectations discovers that size is relative when it comes to gifts. … Roland’s red polka-dot pajamas are among the splashes of holiday color in the spirited vignettes that playfully accent ample white space and Reynolds’s brief, hand-lettered text.
This story of “good things come in small packages” and the value of family is a welcome offering.

Reynolds’ spare illustrations, which are by turns funny and heartwarming, make this small book an ideal big gift for the holidays.
A small book with a big heart.
A lovely story about the perfect holiday gift: family.
