A Wonderful Christmas Story !
There are very real life examples in the book that may need to be explained to small children. For example, a child that is bald, crying and in a hospital bed due to a probable cancer treatment or brain surgery. This image may be confusing or even scary for small children.
The main character, Edgar, sees some sad situations, including the one listed above and feels as though perhaps he can do something about the problems at hand. Edgar learns to use his gifts as not just for him, but as an opportunity to help others. Because of his kindness, he has a surprise come to him at the end of the story that is quite a delight.
Where Are My Christmas Presents? is a story that will engage elementary-aged children and teach them that Christmas is more than just receiving, but about giving as well.
