This book is a classic. It is a must read during the holiday season. It is a story about how everyone has love in their heart. Some people just need to be loved to uncover it. This book can be used in the classroom around the holidays as a fun story to read as a whole group and then do activities as a class based on the book, such as making an ornament. This book is on a DRA level of 38 and can be read with students from kindergarten to second grade. I personally, think that this book is a book for all elementary ages.
