Season of Light
A Christmas Picture Book
Author: Jess Redman; illustrated by Ramona Kaulitzki
A luminous picture book about Christmas traditions that make the season a time of joy, love, faith, and light.
Under star-filled winter skies, with homes and trees aglow, with candles lit and hearts so full, our love will shine and grow.
From paper snowflakes to silver bells, reindeer to wise men, Christmas is a season of faith and song, giving and serving, loved ones and light that can last the whole year through. With Jess Redman's beautiful poetic text and Ramona Kaulitzki’s luminous illustrations, Season of Light is sure to be a holiday favorite for years to come.

"The illustrations are colorful and beautifully rendered…With less focus on Santa and more on people coming together for the holiday, this is a lovely read for libraries to add to their Christmas collections." —School Library Journal
"Christmas, Redman reminds us, means joy and wonder. It means loved ones coming together, it means people giving their time, their resources, and the gift of song, and it means sharing stories of faith...[Season of Light] exudes a sense of community." —Kirkus Reviews
"Redman sets gifts and treats in the context of lasting values in a celebration of Christmas anticipation... Including wonder, faith, and light, each concept downplays gratification and underscores generosity... It’s a community-focused look at simple holiday joys." —Publishers Weekly
