It's almost Christmas and D.W. can't wait to see her presents. She searches everywhere but the only presents she finds turn out to be for other people! When D.W. remembers that Christmas is a time for sharing, she starts searching for presents she can give rather than receive. With a little time and creativity, D.W. comes up with gifts for each member of her family-and finds that giving is the best present she can receive!

DW is worried about all the things she wants to get for Christmas, when she remembers she has no gifts to give! DW scrambles to find wonderful gifts for her favorite people. Contains a look and find on the back. Cute story for ages 4-7.
Our family is already a big Marc Brown fan, so we thought we probably had a good bet in this new D.W. book. We were right! While most kids spend a lot of time thinking about what they are going to get for Christmas, so does D.W. However, this book gets D.W. (and your child) thinking about what they can get for others! I loved that D.W. took initiative and made the gifts herself, rather than going to the mall!

The illustrations are great and this is another winner from Marc Brown!
Glad Amazon could supply the out-of-print book.
It was used, but the story is terrific and it was as simple as buying a new book.
This is a nice, short story with a thoughtful message at the end. I think most preschool and kindergarten age children will like it.
D.W. is excited about Christmas and she begins snooping around the house looking for her gifts. She asks her Dad if a gift he is wrapping is a present for her. But no, it's a fruitcake for Grandma Thora. D.W's Mom is making something in the basement. "Is that for me?" D.W. exclaims. No, it's a ladder for Arthur's tree house.

Featuring Arthur, Mom, Dad, baby Kate, Pal the dog, and Grandma Thora, D.W.'s Perfect Present is a colorful and delightful holiday book that shows the good feelings that come from giving. Not only is this a great story, but it also features gorgeously rich illustrations by author Marc Brown.

On the back of the book is a fun Holiday Hunt where your child can help D.W. find 13 holiday gifts hidden throughout the house
"D.W.'s Perfect Present" is a story fit for the holidays. This story is part of a newer set of Arthur / D.W. books aimed at slightly younger readers. It is both fully written and illustrated by Marc Brown.

This book is about D.W., who is searching for Christmas gifts all over and outside the Read household. She looks everywhere, but everyone seems to be making a gift for someone else. As D.W. sees all these gifts, she comes to realization that changes her outlook on the holidays.

D.W. is as cute as ever in this story. The story is fairly simple to follow, but quite enjoyable. Most of the pages are fully illustrated with bright, lush color. This is a wonderful book that will make just about anyone happy for the holidays.
Great children's book
Lovely story.
