Description : Dearest little Mia, This Christmas, instead of a Christmas card - you'll have plenty of those - and instead of a present - you'll have plenty of those too, I am sending you a letter . . . Every Christmas Mia and her family read a letter which her Grandpa wrote to her. His letter is a warm, impassioned and heartfelt wish for a better world for Mia to live in. He remembers fondly the times they spent in his garden finding frogs and worms and planting seeds. But Grandpa worries that all the things they love so much are in danger . . . His letter is a hopeful plea to Mia (and to all of us) to continue to care for and protect our precious world. Michael Morpurgo frames his powerful message about protecting the environment in this beautiful personal story about a grandpa's wish for his granddaughter to live in a better world. This vital and timely story is paired with Jim Field's emotive illustrations in this gorgeous Christmas picture book, perfect for the whole family to share.
Description : This charming book contains ten children's stories by Glenn W. Martin. The first eight stories were written for his grandchildren, and to be read to the children of the churches he served at their Christmas Eve Family Services. You will meet Browser the dog, and Marty Mouse, and the three performers who missed the Christmas Pageant. You will find out if Patty got her Christmas wish, and learn about the girl who didn't want anything for Christmas. You will go to the manger with the stable boy, and share the disappointment of Ladius, the shepherd boy, who had to stay home. And you will wonder, with the blind Jacob, whether or not the new baby can really work miracles. The last two stories were written specifically for this book, for his two youngest grandchildren. You will learn why Jesus is missing from the manger, and why Shirley Starcluster can't twinkle. These stories, which are dedicated to Glenn's grandchildren, will never grow old or out-of-date. They will continue to delight, inspire, and bring hope and joy. They are his gift to all children, whoever and wherever they may be.
