She was very impressed with the book. I liked that it showed how much some people can put into giving gifts. It is not just about what you get from people but the love they are sending you by thinking of you. I also like that the message stuck with her. Although there emphasis in the story is helping the child appreciate what has been given to him, it is a good starting point for asking children to think about selecting meaningful gifts for others.
Summary: Cameron does not like the sweater his Grandmother gives him as a gift. Reader Enjoyment Factors: This is a good story about being thankful for family and gifts; and that sometimes after you learn more about something, it becomes even more special. Content Awareness Factors: None. Parent Reaction I liked that it showed how much some people can put into giving gifts. Type of Book: This is a story with lessons parents love to teach about being grateful for what you receive.
Grandma explains the significance of each color. Green represents Cameron's excellent soccer skills, blue represents his success at learning to ride a two wheeled bike, orange represents his favorite fruit, yellow represents how happy his birth made the family, and red represents how he is always in his grandmother's heart. Cameron's attitude toward the sweater changes. He vows to wear it for a very long time.
Every child has received a gift that was disappointing. This book will remind them that the thought behind the gift is more important than the present itself. It also stresses the special link between grandmothers and their grandchildren and how different generations show their love in different ways.
The story will encourage living life with a sense of gratitude, one of the most important keys to happiness. Vincent Nguyen uses branch double spread pictures to illustrate the story. That this is a happy, loving family is apparent from the expressions of the characters. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.

Dear Grandmothers everywhere, Boys would prefer solid colors, in colors that their friends won't laugh at. Sep 27, Lindsay rated it liked it. A cute little book about a kid who gets an ugly sweater from his grandmother and he hates it and refuses to wear it until his grandmother comes for the holidays and explains the meaning of the sweater. Then the kid loves the sweater and starts wearing it. I don't know how old this kid is, but I have a hard time believing that a kid is going to start wearing a sweater he hates just because his grandmother told him the meaning of it.
I don't have kids so I could be wrong.
