A treasury of stories to share year after year
Each Christmas Eve when John Paterson was a pastor, he read an original story to his congregation -- a story that illuminated the true meaning of the holiday season, written by his wife, two-time Newbery Medalist Katherine Paterson. Now you, too, can share them. Whether depicting a child coping with disappointment, friendship between young and old, or a couple awaiting the birth of their baby, these stories present a vision of hope and peace harking back to that first Christmas over two thousand years ago. Here is the perfect holiday gift for friends, families, and church congregations -- to read aloud and share throughout the Christmas season and beyond.
