Only five more days till Christmas! As each day goes by, Everett is more excited. He loves listening to the carolers, watching snow fall from this fourteenth-floor window, and decorating the Christmas tree. But most of all, he can't wait to open his special present on Christmas day.
As poignant today as it was twenty years ago, Lucille Clifton's joyful text brings a little boy's Christmas in the city to life. Newly illustrated in full color by Coretta Scott King Award winner Jan Spivey Gilchrist, this book may have an urban setting, but in emotion and appeal, it is universal.
