Home for Christmas

If you simply don't have time for a full length novel but instead are looking for something you can read a little bit at a time, you might want to pick up Home for Christmas: Stories for the Young and Old which is a collaboration by a variety of authors like Pearl Buck, Rebecca Caudill, Ruth Sawyer, Elizabeth Goudge, Henry van Dyke and others. Each centers around the joyous blessing of Christmas and contains the true message of hope and goodwill towards men in each of these heartwarming stories. There is truly something for everyone tucked away inside. I would find this such a blessing to read one during each day as the Christmas Day approaches to truly get into the Spirit of the Season.

There are twenty short stories tucked away like beautiful presents each awaiting to be read, savored and enjoyed by you or your entire family. "Several are by world-famous children's authors; others are little-known European tales not available in English anywhere else. Selected for their literary quality and their spiritual integrity, they will resonate with readers of all ages, year after year." (excerpt from back cover). This would make a wonderful gift to any book lover or for those looking for another addition to add to their Christmas Advent celebrations.

My favorite was Christmas Day in the Morning by Pearl S. Buck and what it means to one young boy who wants to really give his father something he'll remember for Christmas. Life on the family farm is hard and work begins well before first light, but in this case what this one boy offers as his unconditional gift of love affects his father not only this Christmas but for many more to follow. It is a simple reminder that money doesn't need to be something we have to have to give someone a wonderful Christmas present. I received this wonderful collection of Christmas stories compliments of Plough Publishing House and Handlebar Central in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own unless otherwise notated. This one has found a permanent place in my personal library and is worthy of all 5 out of 5 stars.
