Finding Christmas

Finding Christmas


"The simple story is gracefully told… The gentle tone of both the story and the illustrations is a refreshing, pleasant take on the theme of helping someone in need and enjoying the bonds of friendship." ~Kirkus Reviews (see the full review).

"It’s a tender holiday reminder that generosity means the most when it’s directed at those who are truly in need." ~Publishers Weekly.
