About the Author

Jess Redman is the author of award-winning books for young readers, including The Miraculous, Quintessence, and The Adventures is Now. For Jess, the Christmas season has always been the most wonderful time of the year. These days, she gets to share her yuletide love with her own children--and now with readers!

Ramona Kaulitzki is the illustrator of numerous children's books, among them Sisters First, by former first daughters Jenna Hagar Bush and Barbara Pierce Bush; Wonderful You; and Fly, Firefly! She lives in Germany.

"The illustrations are colorful and beautifully rendered... With less focus on Santa and more on people coming together for the holiday, this is a lovely read for libraries to add to their Christmas collections." --School Library Journal

"Christmas, Redman reminds us, means joy and wonder. It means loved ones coming together, it means people giving their time, their resources, and the gift of song, and it means sharing stories of faith...[Season of Light] exudes a sense of community." --Kirkus Reviews

"Redman sets gifts and treats in the context of lasting values in a celebration of Christmas anticipation... Including wonder, faith, and light, each concept downplays gratification and underscores generosity... It's a community-focused look at simple holiday joys." --Publishers Weekly

"Redman's lyrical rhyming text describes with anticipation the preparations that take place before Christmas. She showcases common traditions of the holiday that explain why this is a season that includes 'wonder, ' 'song, ' 'faith, ' and 'light.'" --Horn Book
