Item Description...
This Christmas will be the most difficult one for Josie, her mother and little brother, Bobby Joe. It is the first holiday for this depression era family since the death of their father and husband. He had always taught this simple family that ?Christmas is not about what we want. It's about what we have.? But this Christmas, all Josie could think about is what she had lost.

Trying to fill the emptiness, Josie begs her mother for a new blue sweater she has been admiring in the store window for weeks. She knows that they can't afford it, but she wants desperately to know joy again. But in the form of three visitors and a surprise sacrificial gift on Christmas morning, Josie finds the joy she is seeking in the true meaning of Christmas.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A children's picturebook about the true meaning of Christmas  Feb 11, 2006
Josie's Gift is a children's picturebook about the true meaning of Christmas. Beautifully illustrated with museum- quality artwork by Frank Ordaz, the story is about a young girl whose father died a year ago, and who hopes to receive a beautiful blue sweater as a Christmas gift. She years for it, thinking that having it will fill the void deep inside. Her mother teaches her that "Christmas is not about what we want. It's about what we have." But it's not until a family with a baby comes by in need of shelter that she remembers what the Christmas nativity display really means. By giving her blue sweater to the baby, and giving thanks to God and Jesus, she feels full once more. "For Christmas, she knew, wasn't about what she wanted. It was about what she had, deep down in her soul that only God could give." A profound and heartwarming story meant to be shared with the whole family during the holiday season.
