Read full description of the books The Christmas Gift: El regalo de Navidad:
I felt like I stepped out of The Grapes of Wrath. This was a warm tender story of the true meaning of Christmas. A poor migrant family in California just scraping by have to move again to a work camp. It is wet and cold and too cold to pick the cotton but they have each other. It makes you grateful for the abundance we have now. Now those were hard times. John Steinbeck would have been proud of this book. Illustrated beatifully. When you can feel shivers or cold or wet or whatever you know the illustrator has done her job and done it well. Great Christmas book, not jolly but don't we have enough jolly already?
