My favorite Christmas story ever. Have a tissue handy - it will make you cry! I first discovered this as a short story in the author's collection "Children of Christmas." In 1997, it was published as a stand alone picture book. If you plan on reading it aloud to a group - practice first, just to make sure you can keep emotions in check!
