The Greatest Christmas Gift takes its readers on a nostalgic sleigh ride of emotions and life lessons as experienced by a young boy named, James. Far away from his family in New York, he attempts to celebrate Christmas with his father in Marietta, Georgia. As a winter storm hits, it threatens to ruin Christmas forever! Feeling homesick and heartbroken, something unexpected happens that causes James to see Christmas in a whole new light.
The Greatest Christmas Gift invites children and families to experience the spirit of the holiday, create family traditions and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.
