"The illustrations are colorful and beautifully rendered… With less focus on Santa and more on people coming together for the holiday, this is a lovely read for libraries to add to their Christmas collections." —School Library Journal
"Christmas, Redman reminds us, means joy and wonder. It means loved ones coming together, it means people giving their time, their resources, and the gift of song, and it means sharing stories of faith...[Season of Light] exudes a sense of community." —Kirkus Reviews
"Redman sets gifts and treats in the context of lasting values in a celebration of Christmas anticipation... Including wonder, faith, and light, each concept downplays gratification and underscores generosity... It’s a community-focused look at simple holiday joys." —Publishers Weekly
"Redman’s lyrical rhyming text describes with anticipation the preparations that take place before Christmas. She showcases common traditions of the holiday that explain why this is a season that includes 'wonder,' 'song,' 'faith,' and 'light.'" —Horn Book
