Though Pearl S. Buck wrote the story in 1955, this is the first time it has been published as a picture book. Mark Buehner's inspired illustrations capture the heart of the book's message about giving the gift of love for Christmas. 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...we won't tell you the rest, so you can discover the surprise yourself! Who knows what your own children will come up with after hearing this story?

I purchased this book

I purchased this book years ago because I fell in love with the illustrations. Since I live in WV, I feel a kindred spirit to Pearl Buck. I didn't have any small children at the time I purchased the book so I've saved it for many years. Now I have a wonderful great nephew and great niece who are both the right age to appreciate this beautiful story. This year the book will find a wonderful home with them.

I ordered this book

I ordered this book to read to my 10 year old granddaughter.She is being raised by her daddy and I wanted to share with her this story to show her how much her daddy loves her. We had a very good cry over this story at the end and a great discussion about what love means. I gave her the book and suggested she take it to school to have her teacher read it to her class. Great Story!!!

Very sweet story of the true meaning of gift giving. We still give a Christmas "picture" book to our children each year although they are all adults now. Finding books with a really good story gets harder and harder but this one was a hit!
