Book Description

Sept. 11 2012
In this celebration of the joy of giving, one snowy Christmas eve, a king buys some soft, red cloth to make the perfect Christmas gift for his daughter. Little does he know that the left-over cloth will be used to make presents for many more of the kingdom’s inhabitants, right down to the last teeny bit of cloth which is made into a scarf just right for a mouse.

Product Description


This is a delightful tale with a nice rhyming cadence, a well-paced and clever buildup, and satisfying ending. The vibrant acrylic illustrations are charming and filled with action, fine for group storytime or bedtime sharing.
—School Library Journal

The endearing mixed-media illustrations, often arranged on the page within a simple sewing pattern, effectively capture the joy of the season. The warm message of the closeness of family pervades both text and pictures, and the final two-page spread brings all the inhabitants together, ice-skating in their brand-new finery—a lovely communal touch.
—Booklist onilne

Rosalind Beardshaw has illustrated several picture books for children. A television star and artist named Rolf Harris visited her school when she was ten years old and inspired her to draw and draw and draw. She’s still drawing today. She lives in York, England with her partner, young son, and baby daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute story!! Dec 7 2012
By sandyc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered 3 of these books for Christmas. The message of Christmas sharing is excellent, pictures are nice and bright. The children I bought for are probably a little young to get the message, but it is a cute story.

I liked it more than the 3 year old. Tale of how everyone gets joy no matter how small from a bolt of cloth. Encourages gratitude, resourcefulness, recycling and creativity.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful Christmas story! April 26 2013
By T. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful story of what is leftovers, or trash, for one is something perfect, or "Just Right" as the title states, for another. I purchased this book for my personal collection, but I will certainly be using it for my preschool storytime at the library!
