“Uncle Vova's tree is not my favorite book by Polacco. The story is a little boring, especially for young children. It goes a little above their understanding. The images support the text, and are very colorful. You do get a sense of cultural background when Polacco draws the detail on the character's clothing and other household furnishings.”Linda Bates wrote this review Tuesday, April 2, 2013.

“Great pictures and a simple story which weaves Russian traditional Christmas customs into a story of family love.
