Don't you just love holidays?
I know I do. I guess that's why I love to
write books about holidays. I hope
you'll add some of the following books
to your holiday reading list this year!
IF I HAD ONE WISH
At a crowded mall filled with holiday shoppers, Alec
stops to help a poor old bag lady. In return, she
presses a strange coin into his hand. "It will grant
you one wish," she tells him. "Use it wisely." Alec
doesn't believe a word of it - until in a fit of anger
he wishes his little brother was never born!
It's the first Christmas since Matt's mother has died,
and Matt, his little brother Jamie, and their Pa are
trying to make the best of it. When Matt and his
beloved Labrador Retriever, Sara, set out to hang
suet balls for the birds, just as Ma would have done,
they are surprised by a hungry bear. In the
frightening adventure that follows, Matt remembers
his mother's words, "Some things you just got to take
on faith." It is time for Matt to put his faith to the test.
It is Taquontikeeswush, the moon of the falling
leaves. The creator's gifts have been harvested and
tucked away to provide for the People through the
long winter months ahead. It is time now, time for the
people to come together and give thanks.
In prose with the cadence of a drumbeat, the author
reveals the the rhythms of Narragansett life. Almost
hypnotic in their power, art and text are infused with the
communal spirit of Thanksgiving.---Publisher's Weekly
