"This cozy Christmas tale centering a Black family feels new and familiar at the same time. A recommended purchase."--School Library Journal
* "Carrying the charm of old-school watercolor paintings and the cinematic appeal of film, Jackson's light-dappled illustrations further contribute a seek-and-find element via the kitten hiding across the spreads, while Bailey's rhyming lines bring the holiday's cozy ups and downs to this view of a bustling family celebration."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "[The illustrations] beautifully capture the joy of a Christmas morning spent with relatives and the cozy fun of a winter day. When little ones realize that the kitten can actually be spotted on each spread, they'll be eagerly flipping back through the pages to find it peeking out.... An enchanting, family-centered take on 'The Twelve Days of Christmas.'"--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
