Baker & Taylor
Affectionately giving mismatched gifts to her loved ones, exuberant preschooler Ivy bequeaths glasses to the dog and a pacifier to the cat before struggling to keep an object she especially likes and offering a loving hug to her baby sister. By the author of Her Mother's Face.

A gift book that's a gift book - for very young picture book readers, with a warm Helen Oxenbury feel.

Ivy loves to give gifts, even though she doesn't always give the right present to the right person. (The dog doesn't need glasses! The cat doesn't need a pacifier!)

And Ivy finds that sometimes it's hard to give BACK something you've borrowed and fallen in love with.

But in the end, everyone is matched up with the right present, Ivy gets to keep the thing she likes best, and gives her sister the best gift of all: a big, warm hug!

& Taylor

Ivy loves to give presents, and although they are not always appropriate, they are always given with enthusiasm and generosity.
