Pearl S. Buck
Illustrated by Mark Buehner

I wish that every family could have this book in their holiday collection, for it captures the true meaning of Christmas in such a simple and poignant way. Though Pearl Buck wrote the story in 1955, this is the first time it has been published as a picture book. And, oh, what a picture book it is.

Mark Buehner's inspired illustrations capture the heart of the book's message. (His picture of snow covered fields under a clear starry sky is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen.) In a note at the beginning of the book, the illustrator says how honored he is to create pictures for a story that has meant so much to his own family. When they first heard it read in church, his children were so inspired that they went home and stayed up half the night cleaning the house for their parents as a surprise.

The story is about giving a true gift of love on Christmas -- not a store-bought present, but a meaningful gift someone really needs, and one that comes as a complete surprise to that person. A fifteen-year-old boy on a working farm lies awake on Christmas Eve and thinks of the best present he could ever give his father. Waiting until everyone is asleep, he rises in the middle of the night to... I won't tell you the rest, so you can discover the surprise yourself. I think your own children will be inspired. Who knows what they will come up with after hearing this story? This is a not-to-be-missed classic, to be cherished for years. A true gift of love.
