A Gift To Remember is a religious-themed picture book for children written by Merideth Tullous and illustrated by Ylber Cervadiku. Santa and his elves were keeping busy in his workshop, making toys and opening letters from little boys and girls across the world. Everyone at the North Pole was so excited that Christmas Eve was almost there. Then, it was finally the night before Christmas. Santa had everything ready; his sleigh was loaded down with toys, and his reindeer were patiently awaiting him. He went home to spend some time with Mrs. Claus, who mended his red trousers and posed a very interesting question to him. "If there were one gift you’d give to all the children in the world, what would it be?" she asked. It took him a minute or two to think about it, but then the answer came to him.

Merideth Tullous’ A Gift To Remember is a moving and eloquent story that helps children and caregivers alike to remember the Christ child at Christmas. All too often, the rush of getting ready for the holidays and preparing for celebrations with friends and family obscures the reason Christmas is celebrated. The author’s story is both fun and instructive as she encourages kids to remember the things that are important. Ylber Cervadiku’s illustrations are glorious! The North Pole images are brilliantly hued, with detailing that kept me engrossed and studying panel after panel. I especially loved the contrasts of the deep blue North Pole night with the lights, hustle, and bustle of the Toy Factory. Gaze in through those windows, and there are marvels to discover. Besides the toys, there are animals, elves and even shooting stars to follow as one reads this enchanting tale. A Gift To Remember is most highly recommended.
