Description

Pip the gnome gets help decorating the Christmas tree from his friends—robin, rabbit and mouse. Discover the beautiful, natural things they bring: a red apple, soft woolen thread, golden straw and a bright, shiny rosehip. 

Colorful illustrations and simple words introduce very young children to the joy of preparing for Christmas. Soft, wintery colors illuminate the day from morning to dusk, ending with the candle-lit tree.

Perfect for bedtime during Advent, the story ends as we say, “Happy Christmas, Pip.”

(Ages 1 to 3 years)


Reviews

“Kwant's art is the star of this simple story. Rendered in what looks to be soft colored pencil or oil pastels, the scenes beautifully evoke the playful joy of decorating a tree. Pip is especially endearing, with his apple-doll face, Santa-red hat, and apple-green suit.”Kirkus
