Is there one book that really stands out as a gift that made a lasting impression? There is one book that immediately comes to my mind that I received when I was 8 years old. It’s called, My Big Christmas Book by Hayden McAllister and my dad gave it to me for Christmas. I poured over it that year and continued to read and re-read it for years after. It has many short stories, as well as songs and recipes, all interspersed between 24 installments of “Muffit, the little angel,” and it’s a whopping 327 pages!
The illustrations are charming, and the stories are heart-warming. It was a wonderful gift, and I’ve treasured it all these years.
Is there a special book (it doesn’t have to be about Christmas) in your collection that someone gave you? What makes it special?
