The Legend of the Poinsettia

(L169)

The Legend of the Poinsettia
In this legend from Mexico, a little girl, Lucinda, is proud to help her mother weave a new blanket for the Baby Jesus to be used in a Christmas procession. But when Lucinda’s mother takes ill, Lucinda tangles the yarn and is unable to complete the blanket.

Felling she has ruined Christmas, Lucinda is reluctant to go to the procession until a mysterious old woman appears from the shadows and tells Lucinda, "Any gift is beautiful because it is given. What ever you bring the Baby Jesus will love because it comes from you."

Nervously, Lucinda grabs an arm full of weeds, which she brings into the church. As she prays, the weeds open into dazzling red flowers that decorate the alter.

Tomie DePaola's narrative is skillfully pared and the paintings glow with strong color.
