This children's Christmas book, A Gift for the Christ Child, is based on a South American Christmas folktale. The story revolves around two young boys who, in order to make the family Christmas offering, must travel a long way on foot from their modest home in the mountains to the big church in town. Along the way, they are challenged to be courageous, resourceful, and self-giving when they meet an older woman in need of their help.
This meaningful children's Christmas book offers a lesson in the importance of generosity and sacrifice during a season where so much of the focus is on receiving. Ages 4 to 8.
