Reviewer: Beth Carpenter
What a timeless, heartwarming story. How special that the great-granddaughters of the original author took the time to publish this for others to enjoy. A Christmas story for children that is not all about Santa Claus. Wonderful! The illustrations are beautiful and I hope to see more from this talented artist. This will now be a tradition in our home.

Reviewer: NCTH
Elizabeth Guilford's primitive-style illustrations are just right for this charming, old-fashioned tale of a family's simple Christmas celebration. Santa makes an appearance, but the focus of the story is on Christian love. A good read-aloud book for the holidays.

  Lovely Christmas Book , 10/10/2013
Reviewer: Book Lover
This is a wonderful Christmas book. It offers something different than the usual Santa Claus or Nativity story. A great lesson for children on the meaning of Christmas and how one can find joy and happiness through thinking of others and putting them before oneself. Beautiful illustrations as well!
