It is Baby Luca's first Christmas and he is not even six months old. The Christmas tree is up and the shiny lights are all hung. Friends and family have come to decorate and they hang the ornaments on the branches. They put a wreath on the front door and the wrapped presents lie beneath the decorated tree. There are gifts for everyone - mother, father, cat, grandpa, captain, grandma, and many others except the dog who has been bad. Everyone is excited to open their presents on Christmas morning. What did Luca get or did they forget to buy a present for Luca?

Luca Got What For Christmas by Michael Verrett is an adorable story that captures the festive spirit and essence of the Christmas season. The illustrations are delightful and they make the scenes vivid, breathe life into the story and give it a good pace and movement. It is a perfect book to give as a gift to children during the Christmas season. Tutors can use the book in classrooms and school libraries for read aloud and storytelling sessions, especially during the Christmas season to make the seasonal vibes tangible to children. Storybooks like this help children understand and feel the festive spirit of Christmas and the season. The manner in which the family goes about decorating the tree and the house and buying presents for everybody is palpable and will definitely bring back warm memories of the season if one is reading the story at any other time.
