The Last Straw by Paula Palangi McDonald, Illustrated by Carol Pettit Harding. This story is about a modern family and their quest to serve one another in order to fill the manger for the baby Jesus. Really cute!
Christmas Oranges by Linda Bethers, Illustrated by Ben Sowards. This story tells of a girl at an orphanage who is excited to taste her first ever orange. I love the story and the message of selfless service and love to those around us.
Oh, Come, Little Children by Anita Reith Stohs, Illustrated by Benrei Huang. I found this on the clearance desk at Seagull Book for $2.00! It is adorable and I love the whimsical pictures that go along with the simple story.
The Little Shepherd Girl by Juliann Henry, Illustrated by Jim Madsen. I absolutely LOVE the pictures in this book! I also love that the little girl wants so much to help her family. This is a great story about the shepherds and also about father/daughter relationships.
