This Mexican legend tells how the poinsettia came to be, through a little girl's unselfish gift for the Christ Child. Beloved Newbery honor-winning author and Caldecott honor-winning illustrator Tomie de Paola has embraced the legend generating use of his own special feeling for Christmas. His glorious paintings capture not only the brilliant colors of Mexico and its art, but in addition the excitement of the children preparing for Christmas and the hope of Lucida, who comes to decide what tends to make a gift truly beautiful.
