If, like me, you’re trying to stress to your children that Christmas is about not just getting, but giving, here’s a book that may help further your efforts. Since the holiday is so close, this is going to be a quick and dirty contest. Leave a comment below explaining how you emphasize the giving aspect of Christmas and I’ll draw a name and announce a winner Sunday.

Mia is almost ready for Christmas — all she needs now is a Christmas tree. But on her way home with the three, an old man slips right in front of her. Of course, Mia stops to help him up. Then she meets a little boy who has lost his hat. Mia can’t just let him stand there crying. When she finally gets home, it is too late to get a Christmas tree. Or is it? This magical story about the true spirit of Christmas giving is sure to become a holiday favorite.
