The Christmas Child (Paperback)
Come along on a Christmas adventure that will find you affirming not just your belief in Santa Claus, but in yourself as well. Mary Robinson's The Christmas Child is the story of ten-year-old Becca, who was born a Christmas Child, but is beginning to question whether she's anything special after all. Worse yet, her belief in Santa Claus is being forced into question, too. When a mysterious creature appears in her room and asks for her help, Becca's journey to save Christmas--and find her own self worth--begins. With a story that combines an engaging heroine, a villain reminiscent of Snidely Whiplash, and everything from baseball-playing polar bears to the best dog ever with a healthy dose of the magic of the holiday, Robinson has created a story that is destined to become one of your family's treasured Christmas traditions. Perfect for family story time, it is also a good choice for middle readers or reluctant readers of any age!
