#StorytimeChristmasCountdown Day 9: The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey
by: Susan Wojciechowski 
Picture Book

Wonderful Illustrations are the Perfect Complement to this Unusual Christmas Story

This is not a religious Christmas book, nor is it without tragedy (though there is a happy ending). The story does feel real, though, and is beautifully - almost lyrically told. The illustrations are top notch and really bring the story to life of the gloomy woodcarver and the boy who helped his spirit heal.

4 stars
