Blurb from the book:
After being forced to wear lederhosen for the annual holiday card picture, twelve-year-old Chris thinks that the least his parents can do is get him the Tony Hawk skateboard he wants for Christmas. But when he recovers the hand-carved Baby Jesus that everyone thought had been destroyed in a fire the year his Grandma died, Chris realizes that some gifts are even more important than skateboards.
When the author had to discontinue a cherished tradition of reading Christmas stories out loud with his family and holiday guests each week in December, he wrote Finding the Baby Jesus. He had been unable to locate enough meaningful stories that could be read in a single sitting with wiggly children.
Finding the Baby Jesus is a short, sweet and simple story that illustrates the real meaning of Christmas. It is poignant and emotional. It is beautifully written and tugs at your heart strings! It is a quick read, only about ten minutes, but perfect to sit down and read with your family, kids, and grandkids. It will hold your interest and theirs too. It brings to light that giving is much more important than receiving and that some things are much more precious than what lies under the tree. I love this book so much that I am going to buy a hardback copy for my Dad for Christmas! He loves Christmas stories as much as I do, and he used to read to my siblings and I every Christmas season! Five stars for a wonderful Christmas read!
