You've made your list and you've checked it twice, but have you been naughty or nice?
We hope you've been nice if you want to see all the treasures you wished for under the tree! But did you know that everyone's favorite present—including Santa's—isn't one you can buy? As Emily shows, the best presents to give or receive at Christmas are the gifts of kindness and consideration. From The Emily Post Institute, the most trusted name in etiquette, comes a funny, yet well-behaved, Christmas picture book that is sure to be on every kid's wish list.

This is Mike Gutch's first children's book other than his unpublished "book" he wrote in third grade about New York State, which coincidentally is where he resides, in the town of Pelham, just outside of New York City. Mike lives with his wife and four children. When he's not making peanut butter and honey sandwiches for them or working for the Man, he's enjoying the great outdoors. If you'd like to send him a note on the book or advice on how to get anything unstuck, you can email him at email@example.com.

Grade 1-4–Emily loves everything about Christmas, especially giving gifts. Her favorite kinds aren't those that can be wrapped up and put under the tree, but are the true treasures of kindness and consideration. She sets the table and makes special place cards for Christmas dinner, helps Dad put up the lights; she pushes a girl's wheelchair while waiting in line to see Santa and helps the little kids dress for a Christmas pageant. Her cheery do-gooder activities are conveyed perfectly via single- and double-page cartoon vignettes done in ink and watercolor. Emily's willingness to be helpful offers an outstanding lesson about the true spirit of Christmas, and Björkman's bright, engaging illustrations keep the lesson light and palatable.–Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library
