The Legend of the Poinsettia
by Tomie dePaola

In Mexico, poinsettia means flower of the Holy Night. This Mexican legend tells how it came to be, through a little girl's unselfish gift to the Christ Child. The pictures capture the excitement of the children preparing for Christmas and  the hope of Lucida, who comes to see what makes a gift truly beautiful.  *religious*
