ADRIANA TRIGIANI, Very Valentine
The book I'd like to get for Christmas: The Complete Lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II (edited by Amy Asch and introduced by Ted Chapin), because Hammerstein was one of the greatest American artists of all time—his lyrics are poetic, romantic, and full of hope. Perfect for Christmas morning, with a message to carry the whole year through: Choose love.

The book I will give is Brava, Strega Nona!, written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola. What's Christmas morning without a pop-up book? Italian wisdom from a wise witch and gorgeous illustrations, including an overflowing pasta pot where the noodles look like ribbons. Pure joy for children of all ages.
