    1. A boy sees a gift at the top of his parents' closet and knows it's for his birthday. He spends the whole book imagining what can be in the box. Then a lady comes soliciting toy donations for poor children and he gives her the unwrapped gift. I wanted to love it—the message of unselfishness. But the ending was so sudden that it just didn't work for me, and it certainly didn't work for my son, who obviously wanted to see the box opened. Also one of the illustrations was pixellated, ugh. On the u [...]



    2. Title: The Present by Bob Gill Summary: After seeing a hidden present a boy wonders what it could be. Age: 4-6 yearsRating: Maybe Pros: The illustrations are bold and graphic with a judicious use of color. The story is innocent and imaginative; the boy imagines his gift as a boat, a birthday cake, a kite and a Japanese lantern. Cons: The story is poorly paced; with a middle that is too long and an ending that is too quick. The main character imagines his present to be 24 different things and on [...]


    3. In this book, a boy named Arthur sees a present wrapped in the top of the closet. He spends the entire book imagining all the different things that could be in the box. Then, quite suddenly at the end, someone comes to the door collecting toys for the homeless. Arthur goes and gets the box, and gives it away.I wanted to like this book because of the selflessness message, but it was not well written. The ending was sudden and the story was under developed. Plus, my son did not understand why the [...]


    4. A boy finds a hidden wrapped present, suspecting it's for his birthday. While waiting, he tries to guess what is inside. Many are good guesses, while some are just outrageous. In the end, he realizes it's better to give than receive. This would be a fun read for storytime; while it's a birthday present, the idea still works for Christmas (or the wording could be changed in the reading). My only concerns is that it seems fairly long; there are just too many possibilities. Also, I want to know wha [...]


    5. Arthur finds a present in his parents' closet and wonders if it's his birthday present which his mother always ties with a red ribbon. With each passing day, he imagines what the gift might be. finally on his birthday a lady knocks on the door, collecting gifts for kids in need, he run to the closet and gets the present for the lady.


    6. Yeah. This book is totally unrealistic. A kid wonders about his birthday present for weeks when he sees it wrapped up in the closet. Then when the big day finally comes, he gives it away without even openning it to someone collecting donated toys? No way.



    7. Very charming story about a boy who imagines what his present might be but ultimately donates the present without ever knowing what it is.


    8. I thought this was a decent book, though nothing extraordinary - following a boys imaginings of what could be in the present box in his parents' closet - but then the ending won my heart.


    9. I feel like I've read this before? Maybe one of my friend's gifts to her grandson? Don't know, but I liked it a lot.
