Curl up on the couch with your littles by the glow of tree lights and read the beautiful story of the Legend of the Pointsettia. Your child can hold their very own Lucida doll and then hang her on the tree as the beginning of a new holiday tradition.
This gift self includes a handpainted ornament of Lucida. She is 3" tall and comes wrapped in a muslic bag. The book is a paperback copy of The Legend of the Pointsettia by beloved author and illustrator Tomie de Paola, who passed away March 2020.
"This Mexican legend tells how the poinsettia came to be, through a little girl's unselfish gift to the Christ Child. Beloved Newbery honor-winning author and Caldecott honor-winning illustrator Tomie dePaola has embraced the legend using his own special feeling for Christmas. His glorious paintings capture not only the brilliant colors of Mexico and its art, but also the excitement of the children preparing for Christmas and the hope of Lucida, who comes to see what makes a gift truly beautiful."
