Rebecca Bond grew up in the Northeast Kingdom region of Vermont. She graduated from Brown University and also studied illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design.
PreS-Gr. 2. In candy-colored acrylics, Bond limns a family's anticipatory delights in choosing the Christmas tree. The oldest child, Maggie, comes by on Monday to Liberty Street to see the Christmas tree vendor and breathe the "wild and windy" scent that means Christmas to her. Each day that week she visits, bringing a sibling: Teddy, whose dream of a tree involves the rich, woodsy color; Lucas, who loves tree lights; and Ellie for whom the topping angel is best. On Friday their parents come with them to buy the tree. Their dreams involve the family members who will gather to put it up. There's a pretty magic to the images as Lucas dances on rooftops and the extended family arrives flying through the wintry air like angels. The members of the interracial family--one grandmother is blonde, one brown--"turn like tops" around the tree, and then on Sunday all is quiet in the lights of "hundreds of Christmas-tree trees." An urban delight. GraceAnne DeCandido
